TRU microbiologist Dr. Naowarat Cheeptham and Wildlife Conservation Society of Canada biologist and TRU Adjunct Professor Dr. Cori Lausen have been awarded a $75,000 USD research grant from the United States Fish & Wildlife Services to advance the search for effective biological control options against Pseudogymnoascus destructans, or Pd, the fungus that causes White Nose Syndrome (WNS) in North American bats.


Works of art by TRU faculty, students and alumni, inspired by and exploring perspectives of microbes from Dr. Naowarat (Ann) Cheeptham’s drug discovery research, are on display Sept. 21 to Jan. 10 at the Telus World of Science in Vancouver.
