Graduate Programs in Molecular, Cellular and Biomedical Sciences
Vision research at UNH
NIH has awarded to Rick Cote and his collaborators a 5-year grant to understand how defects in the structure and regulation of cGMP phosphodiesterase (PDE), the central enzyme in the visual signaling pathway, can lead to retinitis pigmentosa, a retinal disease that leads to blindness. Learn more…
NSF Fellowship Awardees
Nicole Jaskiewicz (Biochemistry, Ph.D. Grad Program) and Liz Landis (Microbiology, M.S. Grad Program) received prestigious NSF Grad Fellowship Awards to fund their research for the next year. Learn more...
Environmental microbes: the “dark matter” of biology
The National Science Foundation awarded UNH and UC Davis $500,000 to develop a Research Coordination Network on eukaryotic biodiversity. The work will apply new genome sequencing technology to study microscopic eukaryote species. Learn more..
Microbiologists at UNH have received a $716,000 to study the evolution of beneficial microbes by examining the relationship between the Hawaiian bobtail squid and a bacterium that helps it avoid predators by emitting light. Cheryl Whistler and Vaughn Cooper, both associate professors of microbiology and genetics, are the investigators on the three-year grant from the National Science Foundation. Learn more >>>
