Ripon College receives grant for student summer research

Ripon College has received a supplemental funding grant of $6,250 from the National Science Foundation to support summer research by a student.

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) grant is supplemental to an NSF grant received earlier by Bob Wallace, Patricia and Philip McCullough 1969 Professor in Biology; and a major research instrumentation grant received by Patrick Willoughby, assistant professor of chemistry, and Colleen Byron, L. Leone Oyster ’19 Chair in Chemistry, and Wallace.

The working title for the research is “Collaborative Research: Integrating genetics, life history, and morphology to understand the diversification of an enigmatic metazoan lineage.”

This research will add a new dimension to Wallace’s ongoing research on the biology of rotifers, by investigating their lipid biochemistry.
