Fellowships, Grants, Degrees, and Papers!

I have been seriously delinquent on sharing some terrific lab news over the last few action packed months! Our outstanding grad students have landed several grants and fellowships over the past few months. Check this out:

Emily Kopania received a prestigious Graduate Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation to support her research on genome evolution and speciation in mice. Emily also received travel grants from the Society of Molecular Biology and Evolution and the Drollinger-Dial Foundation and a Rosemary Grant Award from the Society for the Study of Evolution. She also published her first co-authored paper in Mammalian Genome. 

Mafalda Ferreira received a Rosemary Grant Award from the Society for the Study of Evolution and published a first authored paper in Molecular Ecology.

Matt Jones received a Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant from the National Science Foundation in support of his research on seasonal camouflage in snowshoe hares. Matt also received travel grants from the American Society of Mammalogists and the Society for the Study of Evolution.

Nathanael Herrera received travel grants from the Drollinger-Dial Foundation and American Society of Mammalogists.

Zak Clare-Salzler defended his Master's Thesis on the evolution of seasonal change in dwarf hamsters. Hard work and perseverance!   

Tremendous work everyone!
