National Institute for STEM Evaluation and Research

The National Institute for STEM Evaluation and Research (NISER) provides quality evaluation services to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research and education sectors, including academic communities, not-for-profit organizations, and government entities.

NISER, formerly recognized as the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) Evaluation Services, was founded in 2016 under the leadership of Dr. Pamela Bishop. NISER’s staff has experience in systems-level evaluation, a deep understanding of interdisciplinary team science, a professional collaborative approach to program evaluation and research, and the ability to untangle the complexity of large-scale STEM programs. We offer a range of data-driven services to best serve our clients’ needs.

NISER is part of the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS), and is housed at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
