• Mark Hay Earns Regents Professor Title
    Congratulations to Mark Hay, School of Biology Professor who was recently named Regents Professor by the Board of Regents for exceptional contributions in education and research.
  • Professor Marc Weissburg Awarded $2.5 Million RIPS Grant
    Congratulations to Dr. Marc Weissburg Professor of Biology who, along with a team of multidisciplinary investigators, has been awarded a $2.5 million dollar grant to develop approaches for sustainable and resilient infrastructure.
  • Professors Mark Hay and Danielle Dixson talk about their research in Fiji and why marine protected areas might not be enough to help overfished areas recover. The research was featured on the cover of the journal Science.
  • Dr. Joel Kostka, a Professor jointly appointed in Biology and Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, was recently awarded $1.0 million in research grants by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to study the microbially-mediated carbon cycle in boreal or northern peatlands. Peatlands sequester one-third of all soil carbon and currently act as major sinks of atmospheric CO2.
