The Qualcomm Institute at the University of California, San Diego has given the green light to 35 new projects that are part of the institute’s Calit2 Strategic Research Opportunities (CSRO) program. Each one-year seed grant is worth up to $50,000 in support for researchers in areas of critical interest to the research mission of the institute—and the university.
“Much of my research lies at the interface of computer graphics and computer vision,” says Ravi Ramamoorthi, the senior faculty hire this year for the Computer Science and Engineering department at the University of California, San Diego. “I have published and been active in both of these communities, so I have tried to build bridges between them.”
Golfers will gather on the green to honor their friend and fellow avid golfer Brian Schultz, who lost a sudden and brief battle with cancer at the age of 27. The 19th annual Brian Schultz Memorial Golf Classic will be held on Saturday, August 2 at the Rancho Bernardo Inn and will feature a golf tournament, an awards banquet, family-friendly activities, live entertainment and more. Proceeds benefit research at University of California, San Diego Moores Cancer Center.
