Note: On all grants and contracts prior to joining the tenure track in 1992, unless otherwise noted, I was running the project as the PI, but departmental rules at the time did not allow research scientists to formally hold that role. Thus, in most cases, Edward Riseman served as the PI of record and I was listed as Co-I.
