Texas A&M University expands emerging 'genius corps'

Feb 10, 2014

Nine internationally renowned researchers from various fields will be welcomed on Friday as fellows of the Texas A&M University Institute for Advanced Study, part of a group that administrators have nicknamed the Genius Corps.

The term is a nod to the university’s storied Corps of Cadets, a student military organization that has largely defined campus culture since its founding in 1876. But it is also an indication of Texas A&M’s desire to transform itself into a destination for top research talent, women and men who can elevate the university’s academic profile.
