iQUEST Annual Report, 2004-2005 Director's Statement

Summary: iQUEST Annual Report, 2004-2005
Director's Statement
It has been a year of change and transformation at iQUEST. Beginning July 1, 2004, iQUEST
began managing extramural contracts and grants for the Department of Chemistry and
Biochemistry (DCB) in addition to those of its current principal investigators. In order to handle
the huge increase in workload, two additional administrative staff were hired, bringing the total
to five. In the end of August, iQUEST moved from a trailer in front of the library to newly
renovated offices on the third floor of Broida Hall. Finally, to reflect its new identity, and after
consultation with the Advisory Committee, the Office of Research, the Academic Senate, and the
chairs and members of many academic departments, iQUEST decided to change its name to the
institute for Quantum and Complex Dynamics (iQCD), effective July 1, 2005. Thus, this will be
the final annual report from iQUEST. Next year's will be the first from iQCD.
Much of the story of the last two years is evident from the following numbers:
2003-2004 2004-2005

33 122
Total value of submitted
$15.8M $45.4M
