Northern Arizona University is set to receive a $525,725 research award from the National Science Foundation.

The award will fund the development of interactive software that will allow researchers to collaborate and share information to advance the study of microbes and microbiomes. Due to the collaboration, researcher’s ability to classify and study single cellular organisms will dramatically increase.

U.S Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick commented on the grant, saying, “We should all be proud of NAU’s research efforts and their important role in Arizona’s higher-education system. NAU is also a major force in northern Arizona’s economy, so these additional resources are good for the entire community.”

The award takes effect in May.
