February, 2007 Adam Kay, Tom Marsh, and UST Colleagues Receive Merck-AAAS Undergraduate Research Grant. The Chemistry and Biology Departments at UST have received a grant from the Merck Institute for Science Education and the American Association of Science’s Undergraduate Science Research Program. The aim of the program is to increase integration between biology and chemistry programs through collaborative research. The lead investigators on the project are Tom Marsh (Chemistry) and Adam Kay (Biology). Other principal investigators are Tony Borgerding and Tom Ippoliti (from Chemistry), and Kyle Zimmer and Jayna Ditty (from Biology). The award of $60,000 from MERK-AAAS and a $30,000 match from UST will be distributed over 3 years for student research support and for establishing
related programs and activities.
