Jackson State University Launches Four New Research Projects With Princeton University

Jackson State University researchers, in collaboration with Princeton University, have begun a second round of projects aimed at addressing some of the nation’s most difficult challenges. The program is funded by the Princeton Alliance for Collaborative Research and Innovation (PACRI) and was developed in partnership with the United Negro College Fund. Each project receives up to $250,000 in funding for a duration of two years.

PACRI aims to foster more inclusive research and innovation. The alliance, with diverse expertise and academics from different disciplines, tackles issues from cybersecurity to climate change to public health and social issues.

The following four second-round research projects are being conducted by Jackson State  and Princeton faculty members:

* Green Solvent-Based Processing and Passivation of Metal Halide Perovskites for Solar Cell Application

* The 2024 National Black Election Study

* Sustaining Black History through a Regenerative Future: The Margaret Walker Center at JSU

* Optical Preparation and Read-out of Nanosystems Used for Quantum Information Applications

Two research projects were begun last fall and our continuing into their second year:

* Dielectric Performance of Polymer Nanocomposite Heterostructures for High Energy Storage Capacitors

* The Shifting Safety Net: The Role of Disability Insurance Programs in Household Budgets, Dynamics, and the Broader Community
