I am pleased to present the fourth annual “Major Sponsored Program and Faculty Awards for Research and Creative Activity” report. This booklet highlights the successes of University of Nebraska–Lincoln faculty during 2005. The funding sources, projects and investigators on major sponsored program awards received during the year are listed, as well as patents issued, published books and scholarship, fellowships and other recognitions. New this year are intellectual property licenses and performances and exhibitions in the fine and performing arts. The list is impressive and continues to grow each year—further evidence the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is on the move! We work to closely integrate our research priorities with our established programs of excellence. We are dedicated to fostering interdisciplinary research and collaborations with public and private partnerships, expanding our economic development efforts by working with business and industry.
