Four Department of Biology students reflect on how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed their experiences as students.
Mykles will lead a team awarded a $1.2 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to use DNA and peptide sequencing to identify genes and proteins essential for the molting process.
Forester was awarded the David H. Smith Conservation Research Fellowship, which she will use to investigate how best to integrate large-scale genomic data into ESA listing decisions.
Gail Koelln founded One Earth Conservation, an organization that empowers local people to create sustainable economies that conserve and support their indigenous parrot populations.
Ruegg received the NSF Career Award Grant of 1.18 M dollars to continue her research into migratory birds. Her team will study the migration of 11 species, the first empirical test of the theory that the individuals from the same breeding site migrating to the same wintering site promotes local adaptation in wintering areas.
Placing first and second in the 3MP competition at the 2019 NPSMA conference, PSM students Nathan Edwards and Molly Selleck demonstrated their ability to communicate science well to the general public, interpreting their research to a general public audience in just 3 minutes.
Through collaboration between Colorado State University, Poudre School District, and the Rocky Mountain Cat Conservancy, students in Fort Collins have discovered how humans and wildlife interact in urban settings.
Sarah Groenwald is a recipient of the Knowles Teaching Fellowship, learning new ways to teach science to high school students.
