History: Initial Initiatives
The CONNJUR Project was originally conceived as a software initiative by Dr. Michael Gryk from the University of Connecticut Health Center,
Dr. Tim Martyn from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute at Hartford and Dr. Heidi Ellis from Western New England University.
After Drs. Gryk, Martyn and Ellis received a grant from the National Institutes of Health, several students from Rensselaer at Hartford
worked on developing the initial data model and software application as part of their requirement for a Master's Degree in Computer Science.
These students included Dr. Susan Fox-Erlich, Richard Giorgio, Gary Klesczewski, Robert Rapauch, George Rypysc and Jay Vyas.
