In a very competitive field, VCU researcher Joseph Morina has received one of only eight prestigious grants for 2015-2018 from the Virginia Sea Grant. Working in the lab of Dr. Rima Franklin, Morina will use the award to study microbial nitrogen cycling at the VCU Rice Rivers Center and other tidal wetlands in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. The award is $80,000 to cover three years of research.

Additionally, Mr. Morina was awarded a Rice Rivers Center Scholarship as an undergraduate and will be receiving an additional one this year for his Master’s work. VCU congratulates Mr. Morina on his hard work and excellent results thus far.
