Virginia Tech's first snowfall this winter — but certainly not the last!
Aiming to help make life better for shelter dogs, Erica Feuerbacher, an assistant professor in the Department of Poultry and Animal Sciences, and a team from Arizona State University will work with approximately 100 shelters to evaluate three types of fostering. The team's reseach is supported by a three-year, $1.7 million grant from Maddie’s Fund, an animal welfare organization.
An interdisciplinary team of CALS researchers — powered by a newly funded $3.7 million grant from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture — is developing new cultivars of edamame best suited for growth in the United States.
