With no biological program to drive it, nascent multicellular clusters adopt a lifecycle thanks to the physics of their stresses. The accidental reproduction drives them to evolve as multicellular life.
Scholar, educator, award-winning book author, interdisciplinary innovator, and shaper of future scientists, Joshua S. Weitz wears many hats at Georgia Tech, but his influence reaches far beyond. For his contributions to the field of viral ecology, Joshua Weitz has been elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
Minda Monteagudo and Conan Zhao are among six members of the College of Sciences community to be named 2018 Diversity and Inclusion Fellows. The program brings together faculty, staff, and students who individually and collectively advance their action, research, or teaching objectives while enhancing the culture of inclusive excellence at Tech.
Petit Institute core facility at Georgia Tech adds new equipment and services, allowing researchers to dive deeper
In the Ford Environmental Science and Technology Building, the office of Martha Grover is three doors from that of Jennifer Glass. Both are Georgia Tech scientists doing research related to astrobiology – life in the cosmos – but until last year they hardly talked to each other as researchers with common interests. Now, Grover, Glass, and others at Tech are members of a growing community that’s coalescing astrobiology activities across campus.
Sam Brown aims to understand the dynamics of the bacterial populations – or microbiomes – associated with cystic fibrosis to develop treatments targeting the specific microbiomes of individual patients.
Postdocs Karan Jani and Karelle Sielez, at the Center for Relativistic Astrophysics, and Nastassia Patin, at the School of Biological Sciences, are recognized for outstanding work at the 2017 Georgia Tech Postdoctoral Research Symposium.
