Grants

  • Idaho Division of Public Health and Idaho Bureau of Laboratories Subgrant
    Jacob Hornby and Leigh Latta received a $137,700 subgrant from the Idaho Division of Public Health and Idaho Bureau of Laboratories as part of a larger statewide grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for Sars-Cov-2 Surveillance Testing of Wastewater Samples. As part of national and statewide efforts to monitor Sars-Cov-2 transmission, LCSC will serve as one of five regional testing facilities in the state of Idaho that will receive wastewater samples from wastewater facilities and determine Sars-Cov-2 viral load in these samples. Data from the project will be uploaded to a national, centralized database that may be accessed and used by members of the scientific and healthcare communities in order to inform local health care districts of impending increases in hospitalizations due to COVID-19.
  • New Work Scholar Worksite
    In conjunction with the subgrant, Jacob Hornby and Leigh Latta established the subgrant as a Work Scholar Worksite that will employ up to two LCSC students that are eligible for the Work Scholar program to serve as laboratory technicians for wastewater surveillance.
  • HERC Grant
    Two students who conduct research with Leigh Latta (Heidi Sellman, Sarah Eberle) received HERC grants to support their research. Heidi’s project examines the relationship between behavior and gut microbiome composition in Daphnia magna. Sarrah’s project examines the efficacy of chlorhexidine gluconate as an antimicrobial against bacterial species of the mouth.
  • Jessica Savage and Clay Robinson: HERC Grant Award
    Students Emily Cowdrey and Tori Frei recently applied for a student HERC Grant and were awarded funds for their project: Lower Body Biomechanics of Post-surgical Knees and Healthy Knees During Single Leg Hops. They are hopeful that they will be able to get close to 20 participants and are excited to be utilizing the Vicon Motion Capture System in the lab.
  • Eric Stoffregen: SuRE-First (R16) grant submission
    Dr. Stoffregen submitted an application for a SuRE-First (R16) grant through the NIH on 9/24. It won’t be reviewed until March. If it gets funded, it is up to 4 years for a total of $500,000 in direct costs plus indirect costs of up to $180,000.
