[fusion_text]H.M. King Bhumibol Professor Dennis McLaughlin, Mitsui Chair Professor Serguei Saavedra, and assistant professors Tal Cohen and Otto X. Cordero were recently awarded CEE cross-disciplinary seed funds. The annual seed fund awards are given to promote collaboration projects between different domains. McLaughlin and Saavedra are working to examine the impact of resource allocation and community ecology on crop productivity and resilience, and Cohen and Cordero are seeking to discover the relationship between the physical and biological processes that underlie how biopolymers are consumed by bacteria.
