Mark Hay Earns Regents Professor Title
Professor Marc Weissburg Awarded $2.5 Million RIPS Grant
Dr. Frank Stewart was awarded $540,000 in March 2015 by the Simons Foundation to investigate the microbiomes of reef fish. The Simons Foundation has made ocean processes and ecology one of their priority areas for investigation. They have initiated a Collaboration on Ocean Processes and Ecology (SCOPE) that will measure, model and experimentally manipulate a complex system representative of a broad swath of the North Pacific Ocean. This collaboration aims to advance our understanding of the biology, ecology and biogeochemistry of microbial processes that dominate the global ocean. A central premise of SCOPE is that we must study the ocean ecosystem in situ, at a variety of levels of biological organization (e.g., genetic, biochemical, physiological, biogeochemical and ecological), and at highly resolved, nested scales of space and time in order to fully describe and model it.
