A team of undergraduates at William & Mary has earned high honors in the world’s largest synthetic biology competition for engineering a potential COVID-19 therapeutic.
Shantá D. Hinton was a pioneer in the study of a group of enzymes known as pseudophosphatases, particularly one known as MK-STYX. Pseudophosphatases were long considered a research dead-end, but Hinton and a handful of other labs discovered that there was nothing pseudo about these proteins.
Bryan Watts, the director of William & Mary’s Center for Conservation Biology, and Fletcher Smith, a research associate at the CCB, are part of an effort to share animal-tracking data to get a handle on what is ahead for the diverse animal populations of the changing Arctic and near-Arctic habitats.
The Piney Grove Preserve has shifted from receiving red-cockaded woodpeckers from other populations to donating woodpeckers. The movement marks a milestone in the recovery of the species and is a testament to the valuable work of W&M’s Center for Conservation Biology.
As the race for a COVID-19 vaccine presses on throughout the globe, a team of budding synthetic biologists at William & Mary are researching another equally critical tool in the fight against the novel coronavirus – therapeutics.
Newly hired Assistant Professor James Skelton's research subjects often involve the quirky organisms people usually don’t notice or even realize exist. Read on to find out what a Quantitative Symbiologist does.
Project offers blueprint for future efforts to maintain & restore coastal habitats.
John Swaddle, faculty director at William & Mary’s Institute for Integrative Conservation, and a group of graduate students have published a paper evaluating a new window-film product designed to reduce bird-window collisions.
A rash of deer deaths in the College Woods is likely the result in an overabundance of biting midges, according to Randy Chambers, director of William & Mary’s Keck Environmental Laboratory.
Dr. Lisa A. Jackson ’84 has conducted numerous vaccine studies, but the task before her in March was different — the timing compressed, the stakes higher — when her team launched one of the first human clinical trials for a vaccine to block infection from the virus that causes COVID-19.
Dan Cristol is the co-editor of a special issue of the journal Ecotoxicology, along with David Evers of the Biodiversity Research Institute.
William & Mary’s STEM faculty across several departments have some up with a variety of creative — and even ingenuous — solutions to conducting lab sections in a pandemic.
For the past seven years, Dorothy Ibes has been using William & Mary’s outdoor space as a laboratory to understand the relationship between human health and human access to nature.
Epidemiologist Erica E. Smith ’08 helps coordinate Delaware’s response to COVID-19
