LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A scientist who specializes in energy storage and an engineer who specializes on experimental cardiovascular surgery are joining the University of Arkansas through a research alliance grant.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson and UA officials on Thursday announced Jie Xiao, associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry, and Morten Olgaard Jensen, an associate professor of biomedical engineering, are joining the faculty as Arkansas Research Alliance scholars. They will each receive a $500,000 grant from the alliance, paid over three years.

Xiao comes to UA from Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, where she was a senior scientist. Jenson comes from the Scandinavian School of Cardiovascular Technology in Denmark, where he was director of research.

The alliance is a public-private partnership governed by chancellors from research universities and chief executive officers from across the state.
