Dr. Frank Stewart in the School of Biology was recently awarded a grant from the Georgia Improving Teacher Quality (ITQ) Grants Program to renew the Summer Workshop in Marine Science (SWiMS). Coral reef collapse, oil spills, and sea level rise are among the most pressing science topics facing policymakers, researchers, and the general public. Understanding these and other issues affecting our oceans is critical to the preservation of marine resources and to a broad education in science. The goal of SWiMS is to use marine science research at Georgia Tech to enhance standards in middle and high school Life and Earth Science education.

Matt Torres Awarded $1.2M Grant from the National Institutes of Health for Investigating Novel Protein Mechanism Involved in Hormone Signaling
The Torres lab has been awarded a four year, $1.2 million grant by the National Institutes of General Medical Sciences to investigate a newly discovered regulatory mechanism that controls G protein signaling, a process essential for the transduction of extracellular signals (such as hormones, neurotransmitters, and photons of light), and the target of most pharmaceutical drugs.

In the water above natural oil seeps in the Gulf of Mexico, where oil and gas bubbles rise almost a mile to break at the surface, scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Columbia University and Florida State University have discovered something unusual: phytoplankton, tiny microbes at the base of the marine food chain, are thriving.
