RNR Grads Featured in Audubon Magazine

RNR Alumni in African ResearchThe international conservation work of three RNR graduates was featured on the cover of the Summer 2016 Audubon magazine. Jared Wolfe and Luke Powell (former students of Dr. Phil Stouffer), and Kristin Brzeski (former student of Dr. Sabrina Taylor)are doing collaborative research and expeditionary work in the small central African country of Equatorial Guinea – (according to Jared) arguably the country least known to science. The feature article, with "amazing photos" is availabe here. A recent LSU Biology undergraduate, Jacob Cooper, is also using his experiences in undergraduate research programs to contribute to the study.

  • More Good News on Zhen--

    UPDATE on Zhen: [2 August 2016] Zhen is Back! We are thankful and surprised to see Zhen back in the office today! He will be in for a few hours each day, as he slowly gets back to his resarch and class work. Welcome Back!

    UPDATE on Zhen: [17 May 2016] Thank you very much for all your help! Zhen is going home today! He still needs time to be fully recovered, but this is already a miracle! The GoFUNDMe account is still open. Any help would still be greatly appreciated!

    Zhen Xu

    Zhen Xu, a PhD student in Dr. Jun Xu's lab was the victim of a serious car accident on Sunday, 6 March 2016. A drunk driver driver, going the wrong way on Interstate 10, ran into the car he was in. Zhen was badly injured, and faces a long road to recovery. A GoFundMe account has been established in his name to help to defray the costs associated with travel and housing for his wife and parents, and perhaps some medical expenses. There is not much we can do to help directly at this time but, with your assistance, we can at least help Zhen’s family a little bit financially.

    You are encouraged to help with a donation, if you can: Here is the link: GoFundMe: Zhen Xu's Medical Fund. Any little bit would be helpful. Thank you!
