Idaho State University biological science faculty are starting to recruit for a research program next fall aimed at underclassmen that offers science and non-science majors the opportunity to do real research – and perhaps even discover new viruses.
The name of the program is SEA-PHAGES, an abbreviation of Science Education Alliance-Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science. It is offered through the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. ISU is among a group of up to 20 other schools accepted to offer the program beginning in Fall 2020.
The Idaho State University Center for Entrepreneurship and Economic Development (CEED) is once again leading a group of ISU students in the Idaho Entrepreneurship Challenge for the 2019-20 academic year to compete for $100,000 in prizes and it’s time to register now.
Idaho State University’s Glenn Thackray, geosciences professor, has been honored as a Geological Society of America Fellow for his insightful contributions to the understanding of glaciation and climate across the Pacific region.
