It’s hard to believe that we are already on the brink of beginning the fall semester. We know that the fall will look very different for a lot of students and researchers due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but one thing that will not change is TriCEM’s commitment to supporting innovative evolutionary medicine research throughout the Triangle. Before diving into the fall semester, we wanted to take a moment to highlight the exciting research projects that were awarded TriCEM grants as a result of our Spring 2020 call for proposals.
