In the last month we have welcomed both Cyd Hamilton and Laurel Kluber into our group at ORNL. Cyd is a Visiting Scientist and ORISE Fellow working with us on plant fungal interactions on the PMI Project. Laurel Kluber is a Postdoctoral Associate working with us on the SPRUCE project as well as our Soil Carbon Cycle Modeling collaborative projects with ESD staff scientists Melanie Mayes and Gangsheng Wang. Check out the updates on the “People” page!
Links to upcoming meetings featuring Schadt Lab researchers are now posted to the ‘Meetings Calander’ page. I am particularly looking forward to attending the Fungal Genetics Meeting in Asilomar this year for the first time, where I am lucky enough to be organizing a session on Ecological Metagenomics with Betsy Arnold of the University of Arizona. I’ve heard from many people I respect greatly that this is a fabulous meeting, and it is surely in a fabulous location!
Also I have included a page titled ‘Projects, Sponsors and Links’. This includes links to some of the major projects we are involved in daily in the Schadt Lab, as well as links to the always important agency sponsors and collaborators. I have only done the easy ones so far (those that large projects that have their own web pages), but hopefully I can add some of the smaller (but no less important!) ones soon.
The ‘Job Postings’ page includes postings for various positions received from collaborators and others I have run across via mailing lists and other sources.
The ‘about’ page also has a new name and a small amount of new content. It is now the ‘People’ page and I anticipate adding more information about current and past lab members as I gain permission, ambition and time to do so.
