    Maryland Smith’s S. Raghu Raghavan is the principal investigator for a five-year National Science Foundation collaborative research award worth nearly $1 million to look into drug cartels: Discovery, Analysis, and Disruption of Illicit Narcotic Supply Networks. As transnational drug cartels continue to grow in size and scope, their trafficking networks have become more complex and fragmented.
