The funding will support student-faculty research at both Rollins and the University of Richmond that focuses on opioid use and disease spread.

Professor of mathematics Zeynep Teymuroglu has received a major grant from the Center for Undergraduate Research in Mathematics (CURM). The funding will allow Teymuroglu and her colleague Joanna Wares of the University of Richmond to extend research funding to seven undergraduate students from both campuses during the 2022-23 academic year.

Teymuroglu and Wares’ research focuses on mathematical models of opioid use and disease spread that can help inform policy decisions around the country. The project goal is effectively transforming the knowledge gained from mathematical models into interventions, such as overdose prevention centers, which could reduce fatal overdoses, lower disease transmission rates, and reduce litter from usage.

The CURM grant of $31,000 will provide financial support in terms of stipends and travel funds to students chosen to participate in the research portion of the project.
