Professor Anita Raja receives CUNY Research Planning Grant

Our own Professor Anita Raja, jointly with her colleagues in the Biology and Chemistry departments at Hunter and Queens College, has been awarded a $20,000 CUNY Research Planning GrantThe CUNY Office of Research's Planning Grant Program catalyzes large, collaborative research projects by "support[ing] multi-college research teams in the preparation and submission of complex, large-scale, center-type proposals to external funding agencies and organizations."

Raja et al.'s proposal aims in particular to address three goals, namely: "[to] (G1) Establish the fundamental mechanisms that determine how phenotypic plasticity contributes to rapidly changing ecosystems across life; (G2) Determine the rules, constraints, and potential for genotypic and phenotypic innovation; and (G3) Educate and train a diverse next generation of researchers and students."

Congratulations to Anita and her colleagues for being awarded the Planning Grant -- a first big step towards these ambitious research goals!
