IMCI Invites Modeling Grant Applications

IMCI invites applications for two initiatives that support research and involve modeling from any field.

DAG deadlines will occur four times per year. The next deadline is Tuesday, Oct. 12. Find the guidelines online. A brown bag lunch discussing DAGs will be at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 21, via Zoom. Modeling Access Grants (MAG) do not provide funding but rather expertise in the modeling aspects of a grant proposal. Any area of research that involves modeling will be considered. Applicants should consult IMCI Associate Director Marty Ytreberg prior to developing a MAG proposal. MAG proposals are short and will be accepted anytime during the year. The approval process can generally be completed within two weeks of receipt of the final proposal.

Instead of hosting the IRIC Lunch and Learn this academic year, the IRIC will host a series of virtual “No Agenda” meetings. The goal is to gather small diverse groups to talk about broad topics that are of interest to the U of I and to build collaboration and innovation.

The Partners in Science Program of the Murdock Charitable Trust makes available $19,000 in grants for high school science teachers to work alongside college or university scientists on real-world laboratory research. The chance to be part of advanced scientific investigations reignites teachers’ passion for science and reinvigorates their teaching. This experience is passed to students as teachers transform their classrooms to better engage students in the practice of science. Program Director Kim Newman will provide details about the program. All seminars are open to U of I faculty members, staff, postdocs and graduate students and are recorded for future viewings. See the website for more information.

The training is interactive and action-oriented. Register online.

Learn About Workers’ Compensation Claims

U of I established a designated providers program for workers’ compensation cases that occur in Idaho. The plan applies to claims submitted on or after April 1, 2021. The designated providers will apply only to workers’ compensation injuries. Employees who need emergency care are directed to use the nearest emergency room. After emergency care, injured employees must use a designated provider for follow-up care. Designated providers will strengthen workers’ compensation benefits for employees. Designated providers will help employees make safe, strong recoveries from accidents, and provide appropriate referrals as needed. The designated providers will provide an “occupational health” approach to workers’ compensation care, which should help employees make better, fuller recoveries from injuries. For more information, visit the website. Contact risk@uidaho.edu with questions.

Carl Hunt

This obituary appeared in The Lewiston Tribune on Sept. 8.

Carl Hunt, 68, of Moscow, passed away Monday, Sept. 6, 2021, because of heart failure arising from cancer treatment complications. He was a deeply loved husband, father, grandfather, Christian, educator and community member. Carl was raised on a farm in southwest Iowa, just outside the town of Atlantic. He told wonderful stories about his childhood on the farm and the Christ-centered, loving family that surrounded him. During this upbringing, the seeds were planted for hard work and a commitment to the noble profession of feeding the world. He became, and would remain for his whole life, an evangelist for agriculture and beef science. Read more.
