Fourth annual Gopi Podila Memorial Scholarship awarded


Senior Maria Torres was presented with the fourth annual Gopi Podila Memorial Scholarship at a ceremony held yesterday by the Department of Biological Sciences at UAH.

Named for the late Dr. Gopi Podila, the $1000 scholarship is sponsored by the Partnership for Biotechnology Research (PBR), of which Dr. Podila was a founding member. It is awarded each year to an undergraduate student in the biological sciences who exemplifies the scholarship's three criteria: academic performance, service to the department, and a demonstrated interest in biological research.

This year, two students - Torres and fellow senior Garrett Dunn - were nominated. "It was a very close vote, as always," says Dr. Debra Moriarity, Chair of the Department of Biological Sciences. "Both of them have a 4.0 grade average, both are double majors in biology and chemistry, and both are very involved in research, so the faculty had trouble choosing between them."

counterfeit multi-vectored-approachAnti-Counterfeit and Anti-Contraband Solutions Research

The infiltration of counterfeit parts into the supply chain is a pervasive problem that often endangers unsuspecting consumers. Aerospace and Defense supply chains are not immune to this risk as the issue cuts across multiple industries, impacts low and high volume products and affects both low-tech and high-tech supply chains. The counterfeit problem is dynamic in that the counterfeit methods are ever evolving and new solutions are continually needed.

The anti-counterfeiting, anti-contraband work by OEIS researchers is directed at a multi-pronged approach to achieve material and parts assurance and counterfeit protection in government supply chains.

Our multi-vectored approach integrates three legs:

  • Trusted supplier programs
  • Discovering and implementing anti-counterfeiting technologies
  • Electronic digital pedigrees (ePedigrees)
