Congratulations to Dr. Anne Dekas at Stanford University, named one of the 2017 Simons Foundation Early Career Investigators in Marine Microbial Ecology and Evolution.  Dr. Dekas is a C-DEBI scientist who studies the microbiology and biogeochemistry of the deep sea, and with this award, will quantify microbial activity in the deep sea using NanoSIMS.

And please tune in to our next Networked Speaker Series talk on 5/11 by Dr. Andrew Steen at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville presenting What Heterotrophs Want: Using extracellular enzyme assays to probe the lifestyle of heterotrophic microorganisms in subsurface sediments.”
