  • Congratulations to two EEB affiliated faculty who received University awards this year:

    Dean Adams was awarded the title of Distinguished Professor. The title of Distinguished Professor, first awarded in 1956, is Iowa State's highest academic honor. It recognizes a faculty member whose accomplishments in research or creative activities have had a significant impact on his or her discipline nationally or internationally and who has demonstrated outstanding performance in at least one other area of faculty responsibility. Nominees must hold the rank of professor and have served at least five years on the Iowa State faculty. The awardee retains the title for the remainder of his or her career at the university.

  • The EEB Research Symposium provides an opportunity for EEB students and faculty to share their current research, network across departments, and showcase the program to prospective students. The symposium is hosted by the EEB graduate student organization, GREBE*. The symposium will features eleven oral presentations, a poster session, and lunch. Among the nine presentations from Iowa State faculty and students, there will be three faculty, six students, and one postdoc representing four different departments. The symposium is bookended by an opening address from ISU alumna Suzanne McGaugh and a closing keynote address by Tracy Langkilde, Head of Biology at Penn State University.
