Two Kennesaw State University​ scientists have received a total of $737,364 in National Science Foundation (NSF)​ and National Institutes of Health (NIH)​ grants for developmental biology research into autism and birth defects. http://bit.ly/2kW4jho

The NIH awarded Dr. Martin Hudson a grant of $378,561 to research how neuron shape affects function and behavior in the nervous system. The NSF awarded $358,803 to Dr. Marcus C. Davis for research that ultimately could lead to eradicating limb birth defects and allowing humans to regrow limbs.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded Kennesaw State University two grants totaling $900,000 to improve minority participation and success in undergraduate and graduate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) degree programs. KSU’s share is part of a $4 million grant over the next five years to fund a University of Georgia-directed project, “Peach State LSAMP – Extending the STEM Pipeline in the Peach State: Mentorship, Research and Graduate School.” http://bit.ly/2eBDwni

Kennesaw State Biology MSIB student Brandy Riekert’s passion for conservation biology translated into two major wins recently, which provide a combined $5,000 in grant and award monies. Both reward her research on the Harper’s Dodder, a rare and endangered native plant vine known to grow only in Georgia and Alabama. http://bit.ly/2ddDtPc

Myles Robinson didn’t have to look far to find inspiration to enter the medical field, or to see a successful Kennesaw State University graduate. After graduating from KSU with a chemistry degree in May, Robinson is enrolled at one of the country’s top medical schools — the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine — with plans of becoming a doctor. http://bit.ly/2b8p7PU

The beginning of the #PerseidMeteorShower was last night, and the “shooting stars” can still be seen tonight and into Saturday morning. Dr. David Joffe, assistant professor of physics at Kennesaw State University, explained that as the debris in the trail of the comet comes into contact with Earth’s atmosphere, the particles burn up, creating the bright meteors that we see from the ground. http://bit.ly/2bnMQLw

The explosion of #datascientist jobs in the private sector is a double-edged sword. While it has increased interest in the field, it has also harmed the academic community around ‪#‎datascience‬. It is this reason that Jennifer Priestley, a professor of statistics and data science at Kennesaw State University, argues that it's time to get serious about a Ph.D. in data science. http://tek.io/2aAozQE

Kennesaw State University's Assistant Professor of Environmental Science Daniel Ferreira attended a symposium on the contaminated soil in #Fukushima, Japan in November 2013. From that symposium, came results that show the power of scientific meetings in spurring creativity and collaboration among scientists to the benefit of society. http://bit.ly/29NPCWq
