Dr. Laura Meredith, UArizona assistant professor of ecosystem genomics in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment (SNRE) and the BIO5 Institute, has been recognized for her early career success with a National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award. The award is the NSF’s most prestigious recognition for early-career faculty members and “embodies NSF’s commitment to encourage faculty and academic institutions to value and support the integration of research and education” and recognizes individuals “who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.” Dr. Meredith will also use the funding to open additional opportunities to students, including within her own research and through a new internship program that will allow UArizona undergraduate students to conduct research with industry partners over the summer.
