We were pleased to announce the recipients of the O.N. Allen Soil and Environmental Microbiology Small Grants program this summer. Eight proposals with twelve student and postdoctoral researchers from six different departments were selected for funding by a panel of their peers and the acting program officers Thea Whitman and Briana Burton. The award recipients and their proposed research can be found here. We look forward to seeing the funded research presented at a campus-wide environmental microbiology symposium, to be held Spring 2019.
This opportunity for UW-Madison graduate students and postdocs studying soil and environmental microbiology is supported by the O.N. Allen professorship in Soil Science, the WID Multi-Omics Hub, the Department of Plant Pathology, and the Department of Bacteriology. We want to thank all the sponsors, applicants, and review panelists for their role in making this program a success.
