Over the past several years, our research group has developed the world's first millimeter scale, fully functional sensor node. Following the first publication of this work in 2011 we have been receiving a tremendous number request for other research groups, government labs, and industries with requests for access to the sensor technology and joint collaboration for further developments of the node to meet their specific sensing modalities. These include the anti-terror group of the Ministry of Defense in Britain, the army research lab, the Advanced Energy Consortium, several groups at the UM medical school, NIST, and multiple other institutions and companies, many of whom we do not have resources to engage with. To be able to respond better to these groups and maintain key research collaborations, it is critical to continue to have a research scientist in our group. We expect this research scientist to help oversee these projects, to effectively advise students, and to pursue additional funding opportunities.
