Long-time New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station researcher Dr. Stacia Sower, professor emeritus of molecular and biochemical neuroendocrinology, recently gave the prestigious Bargmann-Scharrer Lecture at the quadrennial meeting of the International Congress of Comparative Endocrinology.
Considered the pinnacle lecture of the discipline of comparative endocrinology, the Bargmann-Scharrer...
At the UNH Woodman Horticultural Research Farm, a facility of the NH Agricultural Experiment Station, a team of researchers led by geneticist Tom Davis are investigating the potential use of a wild, weedy, locally adapted Chenopodium species as a breeding partner with quinoa in an effort to "re-domesticate" quinoa into a form suitable for crop production under Northern New England’s growing...
NSF's Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences (AGS) will eliminate target dates for three solicitations in the Geospace Science Section:
Coupling, Energetics, and Dynamics of Atmospheric Regions (CEDAR)
Geospace Environment Modeling (GEM)
Solar, Heliospheric, and INterplanetary Environment (SHINE)
Although these programs traditionally accepted new proposals throughout the latter half of...
A new study by Matt MacManes, assistant professor in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Biomedical Sciences, points to the importance of studying both males and females in experimental biology.
For decades, scientists have used mostly males as animal study subjects, assuming that, unless they’re specifically exploring reproduction or sexual behavior, males and females are basically the...
In a Dear Colleague Letter dated June 27, 2017, the National Science Foundation's Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) announced that there will be a one year hiatus in the acceptance of proposals to the cyberinfrastructure for the geosciences (Geoinformatics) program.
Effective immediately, new project proposals will not be accepted in 2017 while the Geoinformatics program undergoes review.
