Faculty at Black Hills State University received two of the eight competitive state research grants recently announced by the South Dakota Board of Regents.

Dr. Katrina Jensen, assistant professor of chemistry, received a $22,880 grant for her project "Development of Copper Photoredox Catalysts for the Synthesis of Anti-Microbial Compounds."

Dr. Justin Ramsey, assistant professor of plant biology, received a $24,803 grant for his project "Characteristics of triploid ivies (F1 Hedera helix x H. hibernica) and potential for development as non-invasive horticultural varieties."

The competitive grant awards direct additional resources to university researchers providing equipment and support of graduate research staff according to Nathan Lukkes, the South Dakota Board of Regents vice president of research and economic development.

"These projects support undergraduate and graduate students, as well as strengthen the universities, and ultimately the state, by generating commercial activity," said Lukkes.
