September 2017 - NSF EPSCoR Award

We have won an NSF ESPCoR award in collaboration with Dr. Hippokratis Kiaris at USC in for our project entitled 'Genome to fitness: An analysis of the stress response in Peromyscus' This award will allow us to support two grad students and a post-doc over the next four years. Our research will focus on understanding the impact of genetic variation in the unfolded protein response on the reproductive fitness and mitochondrial performance of deer mice.
