Grant: Eduardo Robleto
Eduardo Robleto (Life Sciences) has been awarded a three-year grant for $428,000 from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study mechanisms of evolution in stressed bacteria. His research team includes international scientists and seeks to understand how microbes, including bacterial pathogens, adapt to inhospitable environments or become resistant to antibiotics. As a LatinX professor, his efforts to promote inclusion and model our different, daring, and diverse institution include mentoring several intersectional students, working to promote student research for undergraduates as well as graduate students, researching knowledge creation in an equity-driven environment, and furthering the School of Life Sciences by procuring more than $3.2 million since 2006 from the NIH and the National Science Foundation to fund research uncovering new mechanisms of evolution.
