Brenna applied and successfully obtained a Ruth D. Turner scholarships in Marine Biology for her project entitled "Teamwork throughout evolutionary time: characterizing the gut and tunic associated microbiomes of four Belizean ascidian species". Priority is given to proposals involving molluscs, so Brenna's work on the ascidian microbiomes was highly regarded! Congratulations Brenna!!
