Denison University Associate Professor of Biology Kristina Mead is the recipient of the 2008 Marine Biology Laboratory (MBL) Grass Foundation Sabbatical Fellowship, which began in August and continues through the end of the year. The fellowship allows Mead to study variations in Paleomonetes vulgaris (grass shrimp) noses, the regeneration of their antennules, and to write a literature review of animal navigation using the extensive resources of the MBL library.
The Grass Foundation is a small, not-for-profit, private foundation chartered to support research and education in neuroscience. The hallmark program of The Grass Foundation is the Grass Fellowship Program at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Mass. This program provides a first opportunity for neuroscientists to conduct independent research for scientific discovery on their own at the MBL each summer. While sharing the Grass Laboratory, Fellows function as an intellectual and social group within the MBL community.
