The second annual ATKAPPS Exchange occurred at the University of Georgia this past weekend. The Atkinson lab visited the Capps lab at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA to experience a different campus and to get exposed to various research labs. We visited with members of the Capps lab, other Ecology faculty, and faculty based at the University of Georgia's River Basin Center. Saturday was spent exploring a nearby natural area, Panther Creek waterfall. This exchange allows for conversations and collaborations of research and catching up with old friends. Thank you to the Capps lab for hosting us! We are looking forward to hosting the Capps lab in Tuscaloosa next fall. Below there are a few photos from the hike!
Congratulations to Jane Kunberger on receiving an Undergraduate Creativity and Research Academy Grant from the College of Arts and Sciences! She has already been busy in the lab, but this grant will allow her to pursue her own research project. Her project is entitled: "Freshwater Acidification in the Near Future and How it May Affect Freshwater Mussels".
