Erin wins Best Presentation at the 10th Comparative Nutrition Society Symposium! – Congratulations, Erin!!!

Her talk was entitled, “Microbiota reflect lemur nutrition and feeding across time scales.”

Ryan wins an Information Initiative at Duke (IID) Data Expedition Grant!

Ryan, along with his co-applicant and graduate student Mike Rosario, will teach an R-based data focused module of Sheila Patek’s How Organisms Move Undergraduate Biology course. Read more about IID and the Data Expedition program here.

Peter will present his research on lemur immunogenomics at the 2014 Evolution meetings in Raleigh!

His will give a talk entitled “Immunogenomics of non-model species: what can Ig-seq tell us about the evolution of the primate adaptive immune system?”

Dave Weisrock and Anne receive NSF funding to study comparative speciation dynamics and phylogenetic reconstruction in salamander and lemurs — traversing the vertebrate Tree of Life to find common evolutionary trends!!!

Science doesn’t get any more fun than this!!

Erin receives $1,000 Grant-in-Aid from Duke Biology!

This grant will support her study entitled, “From form to function: characterizing gut colonization in lemurs.”

Cori will be interning for the United States Army Corps of Engineers’ Risk and Decision Science team this summer! – Congrats, Cori!!!

She will be focusing on studying community resilience using physical health as a proxy.

Sheena has written an awesome blog for Scientific American on her dissertation research! Congrats!

Peter will present a poster at the 2014 Deep Genomics Symposium in Arizon!

His poster will be entitled “Evolution of the primate adaptive immune system: insights from Ig-seq analyses of Coquerel’s sifaka lemur.”
