As the partial government shutdown continues, the Division of Research is making every effort to minimize the impact of this event on our research programs. The Division is monitoring individual award notices and working closely with colleges, departments and researchers that could be affected. Because we are still spending Fiscal Year 2013 (FY13) and earlier funds, our research operations continue to function at normal levels.
