Congratulations to Dr. Santanu Banerjee from Tougaloo College for receiving a grant from NASA for his research. Dr. Banerjee is a Mississippi INBRE Research Development Grant recipient. The $26,000 grant will allow Dr. Banerjee to conduct research which will mimic environmental conditions on Mars such as UV radiation, temperature, humidity and microgravity. The goal will be to test bacteria samples to determine how long it will survive.
