Clark School faculty members have won several Department of Defense (DoD) Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) Awards. These are grants for research instrumentation.

The recipients and areas of research are the Clark School's Inder Chopra (aerospace engineering) for "Fabrication and Testing of Mission-Adaptive Actively Morphing Rotor Systems," and Ichiro Takeuchi (materials science and engineering) for "Instrumentation for Research on Nanostructured Devices Based on Transforming Materials."

University of Maryland faculty members Cynthia Moss (biology/Institute for Systems Research) and Christopher Monroe (physics) also won awards.

DURIP is designed to fill a critical need of scholars by purchasing state-of-the-art equipment that augments current university capabilities or develops new capabilities to perform cutting edge defense research. Academic institutions generally have difficulty purchasing instruments costing $50,000 or more under most research contracts and grants. The awards are expected to range from $50,000 to $1 million and average approximately $235,000.
