Although the Fralin Life Sciences Institute at Virginia Tech has and will continue to support a spectrum of research initiatives in the environmental and life sciences, it consistently invests in four areas. These research areas include global change, infectious disease, coastal studies, and translational plant sciences. Institute investments in these areas include recruitment and set-up support for new faculty, retention and recognition of established faculty, seed funds for new research projects, equipment purchase, graduate student recruitment and support, undergraduate research support, and support of outreach activities.
