Collaborative Research Leads to CSU Science Success
August 28, 2014
CSU faculty members continue to make waves in the science community as five CSU researchers have won a prestigious grant of nearly $900,000 from the National Science Foundation to conduct collaborative research on ocean acidification and hypoxia. Dr. Scott Hamilton from Moss Landing Marine Laboratory-San Jose State, Dr. Cheryl Logan from CSU Monterey Bay and Drs. Brian Tissot, Eric Bjorkstedt and Jeffrey Abell from Humboldt State will be combining their expertise to examine how climate change can affect the behavior, physiology and gene expression of rocky reef fishes.
“Having a team of scientists who are located all across California and specialize in everything from ecology to molecular physiology to oceanography will allow us to more efficiently address challenging and complex scientific questions,” said Dr. Scott Hamilton.
