Support will help reveal how neural systems organize for sophisticated behaviors like flight
June 29, 2018
Klingenstein-Simons fellowship will help Simon Sponberg reveal how neural systems organize for sophisticated behaviors like flight.
The Esther A. & Joseph Klingenstein Fund and the Simons Foundation have awarded Simon Sponberg a Klingenstein-Simons Fellowship Award in Neurosciences for a period of three years. The award will support Sponberg’s research, described in the proposal “Timing, Learning, and Coordination in a Comprehensive, Spike-Resolved Motor Program for Flight.”

A new study finds new clues that two Earth-like exoplanets are much like our planet.
Researchers suggest that Kepler-186f and 86f's axial tilts are very stable, much like the Earth, making it likely that both have regular seasons and a stable climate.

With Ford Foundation support, Kennda Lynch seeks to learn more about microbes that consume rocket fuel as energy source
June 19, 2018
With Ford Foundation support, Kennda Lynch seeks to learn more about microbes that consume rocket fuel as energy source.
Kennda Lynch believes certain microorganisms in Pilot Valley must be using perchlorate as energy source. Because no one knows what these microbes are, Lynch will spend the next year finding out. Supporting her work is a recently announced Ford Foundation fellowship.

Life on Earth as we know it never would have existed without oxygen photosynthesis, and researchers have cracked a new part of its code.
Oxygen photosynthesis has to be the greatest giver of life on Earth, and researchers have cracked yet another part of its complex but efficient chemistry. The more we know about it, the better we may be able to tweak photosynthesis, if it comes under environmental duress. It's also a great teacher of how to harvest sheer unlimited energy from the sun.
