We did it!

Well it’s officially official: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be funding us to carry out an integrated tick management study here in western CT and in southern RI.  My co-PI is Dr. Thomas Mather, of the University of Rhode Island.  He heads the extremely awesome TickEncounter Resource Center.  Lots of excitement around here and much to be done to get this study going.  We will be hiring a study coordinator and student interns, too, in the coming months.  Although I’ve collaborated on many CDC-funded research endeavors, this is the first CDC cooperative agreement awarded directly to WCSU.  I am TICK-led pink about it.

Wish us luck.

  1. Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so
    I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  2. Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a
    blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
