Apparently we had an exciting winter break! Gina Chaput, graduate student in the Microbiology graduate program, won a Sigma Xi Grants-in-Aid of Research for her work on soil bacterial carbonosomes, complex subcellular structures that act as energy reserves of polymeric carbon to maintain the cell's viability under stress. The Sigma Xi Grant-in-Aid of Research program has a highly competitive application process and only approximately 15% of applicants receive any level of funding. Julia Schnabel, an undergraduate in Microbiology and the Commonwealth Honors College, won two competitive awards for her research over break: a Research Assistant Fellowship and an Honors Research Grant from the CHC for Spring 2016, to work on her thesis project on fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) analysis for identifying changes in microbial soil communities. Good work!
