Collaboration Between NOAA Scientists and University of Maryland Through the NOAA Educational Partnership Program (EPP) Leads to Discovery of New Oyster Probiotic
 
Shellfish pathogens have long been a major challenge for oyster hatcheries in the Chesapeake Bay region. Mortality rates are high for larval oysters, most of which do not survive the transition from free-swimming larvae to anchored tiny versions of adults, called spat. While the yield might be around 40% for larval oysters in the cooler months, in the summer, when pathogenic bacteria is prevalent, the yield is reduced to about 20%. How can hatcheries prevent disease and increase their yields without resorting to antibiotics, which can unintentionally promote antibiotic-resistant pathogen strains? Read more >>

1st Cohort of NOAA-EPP Graduate Research & Training Scholars Selected
 
PhD students Daryl Sibble and Marisa Litz have been selected as the first cohort for a new graduate pilot program with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Educational Partnership Program (EPP). The two students are the first to be awarded the EPP - Graduate Research and Training Scholar (GRTS) award, which is designed to support graduate students during extensive research opportunities at NOAA facilities and other research institutions.

NOAA-ECSC Fellow Publishes Key Article on U.S. Oil Dispersant Policy
 
NOAA's mission of science, service, and stewardship requires expertise from across many disciplines, including policy and law. During summer 2013, Cynthia McGee completed an internship at NOAA's National Ocean Service (NOS) in the International Program Office (IPO), where she had a front-seat view of the international aspects of NOAA's ocean policy. Her article, Breaking Up Is Hard to Do: The Failure of U.S. Oil Dispersant Policy and Lessons to Be Learned from Australia and Norway, was published as the lead article in volume 4 of Law of the Sea Reports, an online journal of the American Society of International Law. Cynthia was supported by NOAA Environmental Cooperative Science Center (ECSC) and graduated from Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law this spring with her Juris Doctor degree. Read more >>
 
Our Program's Goal
EPP Logo The goal of the Educational Partnership Program is to increase the number of students from underrepresented communities who are educated, trained and graduated in fields that directly support NOAA's mission.
