Microbiologist Alyson Santoro receives two grants to explore the deep blue sea in new and innovative ways

For UC Santa Barbara microbiologist Alyson Santoro, the 2016 National Academies Keck Futures Initiative (NAKFI) conference proved that point twice over, when she received a pair of grants to pursue work inspired by the year’s theme, “Discovering the Deep Blue Sea.”

Designed to manifest concrete projects that produce educational, cultural, social or scientific impacts, NAKFI grants provide seed funding for important new research and activities that are sparked by the NAKFIannual conference and that bring people together in fresh ways.
