Art and Science Come Together: Otoliths

We as a species have a large and long-lasting effect on the ecosystems of Earth.

Presented at the 2018 Bay-Delta Science Conference, this project showcases just one of the ways we are impacting life on our home planet.

Science or art alone is not always easy to understand, but when they come together, we can better communicate facts and the feelings that come with their implications.

Research done here in the MC-ICP-MS lab is contributing to this greater understanding, thank you Dr. Sturrock for your research, and thank you Mrs. Assaf for the beautiful art!

Research is costly, equipment is costly! What's the solution? Rachel Paul explains the financial difficulties of various research facilities here in UC

Davis, and how a new program will help alleviate some of these stresses.

"The RCFP just launched a program that offsets the cost of core facilities to scientists who are trying a type of technology they have not used before in their research. This Pilot and Feasibility Program may award money to researchers up to four times this year."

Faculty members, students, we are a core facility! Read the article to find out how this program can help us work with you to explore new technologies you haven't experienced

yet, come learn about how we can help you further your research!
