Erika Calvo-Ochoa, Assistant Professor of Biology and Neuroscience, has received a $20,000 award from the Kenneth H. Campbell Foundation Research Grants Program.  The project is titled Establishment of a novel model of retrograde degeneration in zebrafish to study olfactory dysfunction in Parkinson’s Disease.

Congratulations on your new award, Erika!
