Colleges collaborating on marine research

Posted 7/8/13

BRISTOL – Roger Williams University marine scientists are partnering with researchers from the University of Rhode Island and Brown University to complete projects that would help marine life recover in local waters.

Goals for three of the six projects receiving a 2013 Rhode Island Research Alliance Collaborative Research Grant award include improving the local winter flounder population, identifying invasive marine plants and animals that are migrating into local waters and determining the cause of a local sea-star-wasting disease.

Roger Williams University faculty members Roxanna Smolowitz, David Taylor and Brian Wysor are key partners, the Rhode Island Science and Technology Advisory Council said. A total of $810,541 was awarded among 18 scientists and five research institutions across the Ocean State. •
