Shannon Beston, a doctoral student in biology at The University of Texas at Arlington, has received a prestigious award to fund her dissertation project in which she is evaluating the ecological drivers of eye and brain size evolution in a species of fish.
A UTA researcher has won a five-year, $1.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to look at new ways to harness the body’s own defense responses to fight pathogens like bacteria.
Dr. Matthew Fujita has received a national funding for a project which uses frogs as a model to investigate how differences in habitat such as living above or below ground affect the functions and development of the eye.
Researchers at The University of Texas at Arlington have now provided the first evidence that stable environments like constant predator threats, not unstable conditions, generate these non-genetic “trans-generational responses” in the next generation.
