NOPP Program Update: February 2017

The NOPP Office has had a busy February as we complile and track our active projects.  Over 30 Principal Investgator reports were solicted and collected, each detailing the myriad accomplishments made in 2016 on active NOPP projects.  These are now available on our website.  To view the reports, go to our Active NOPP Projects Page, click on a project, and scroll down to find the “FY 2016 PI Report”. You can also read reports from past projects by going to our NOPP Projects Table and clicking on any project.
