Press Release 12-140 - Video
Meghan Duffy and David Noone work to improve environmental and human health and well being.

The research of 2011 PECASE recipients Meghan Duffy of the Georgia Tech and David Noone of the University of Colorado, Boulder, focuses the health of human beings and the environment in which they live. More specifically, Duffy, funded by NSF's Directorate for Biological Sciences, received her PECASE "for transformative research on rapid evolutionary responses in novel host-parasite associations, and for providing educational opportunities for college students in underrepresented minority groups and inner-city K-12 students in Atlanta." Noone, funded by NSF's Directorate for Geosciences, received his PECASE "for innovative use of stable isotope tracers and modeling efforts directed towards an integrated understanding of the cycling of water and carbon dioxide through the atmosphere, and for actively engaging students in cutting-edge research at middle schools."
