In an SEH biology laboratory, Ioannis Eleftherianos and a team of student researchers are putting the common fruit fly under the microscope in a global race against time to find a Zika virus vaccine.
From a search for malaria and tuberculosis treatments to advances in nuclear physics and mathematical knot theory, it has been a banner year for major new research grants at Columbian College. Faculty and student researchers have charted pulsars, uncovered fossils and investigated Arctic climate change.
