When many things shut down last spring as the COVID-19 pandemic ramped up, one of the things that kept going at Catholic University was research.
Biology Professor Ann Corsi has continued her developmental biology experiments on her nematode worms, C. elegans.
“One of the advantages of being at a smaller school with a smaller research operation is that we have been able to carry on reasonably well throughout the pandemic,” Corsi says. “I have three graduate students working with me and two of them have been coming to campus much of the time since March.”
Dr. Corsi's work is funded by an R15 Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) grant from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research at the National Institutes of Health
