9th Annual AIF Best Paper Award Winners

Please join us in congratulating the 2021 winners! 

The AIF holds a contest each year for the best papers written by students. This year, we selected the award recipients from over 200 papers that have resulted through interactions with the facility. A committee consisting of NC State faculty and AIF staff reviewed the papers and determine the winners. These papers highlight the capabilities of AIF and enable us to fulfill our mission of reaching and assisting principal investigators, students, and external users.
