Monica N. Norby Director of Research Communications
Monica manages communications, including news media relations and the publication of informational materials for the UNL Office of Research.
She is also a significant contributor to UNL's federal research initiatives, helping faculty in the preparation of multi-disciplinary grants. Some of these grants entail millions of dollars in federal support. One example is the $10.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to support the Nebraska Center for Virology, directed by Dr. Charles Wood.
Dr. Wood describes Monica as "the main driving force behind our success. Without her, I do not think our grant application would have been successful."
