The Special Opportunities Grant

In addition to the 2007 individual award, Zolman received a Special Opportunities Grant from the UMRB along with three other UMSL faculty members. This latter support funded the purchase of new growth chambers for the greenhouses, which have contributed greatly to Zolman’s and her colleagues’ research. As she puts it, “this was a project that helped the department as a whole, because now instead of me just getting money for studying my particular aspect of biology, we have places that a lot of faculty can use."
