Attorney General Josh Stein awarded a $133,000 Environmental Enhancement Grant (EEG) to Renzun Zhao, Ph.D., at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. The funding will support research that explores how dissolved organic nitrogen (DON) found in liquid waste generated from landfills might impact water sources in the eastern part of the state. Zhao will collaborate with Hans Paerl and Christopher Osburn, Ph.D., at North Carolina State University.

Many more bioassays are in store for the Paerl lab beginning in 2022! Article here
