What exactly happened in Asia that caused SARS-CoV-2 to rapidly spread across the region and then essentially came to a halt there? That’s what researchers from the University of South Florida are trying to determine in a new study funded by an NSF Rapid Response grant (USF Newsroom).
A University of South Florida researcher is involved in a new study to determine what caused SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) to rapidly spread across Asia, and then essentially come to a halt there. This work is being funded by a National Science Foundation (NSF) Rapid Response grant (Florida Trend).
A new study provides substantial evidence that the first fossil feather ever to be discovered does belong to the iconic Archaeopteryx, a bird-like dinosaur named in Germany on this day in 1861. This debunks a recent theory that the fossil feather originated from a different species (USF Newsroom).
With more than 5,000 beach surveys, 500 behavioral observations, and 80 interviews to digest, and water quality data to crunch, it was time to celebrate this phase of their NSF-funded coastal health study called MERA, which included several trainings by the USF team to help their colleagues get up to speed on a suite of environmental monitoring techniques (USF College of Marine Science).

A professor at the University of South Florida may hold the key to helping slow the spread of Coronavirus. Dr. Yogi Goswami is an inventor and distinguished professor of chemical and biomedical engineering at USF. He created a unique technology that doesn’t just filter air, it actually kills viruses and other pathogens in the air too small for filtration (WFLA).
When it comes to learning how tiny sea creatures move through water, there is no place on Earth that David Murphy won’t travel to. That sense of purpose led the mechanical engineering assistant professor to the National Science Foundation’s Palmer Station on Antarctica’s Anvers Island for a week at the end of 2019 (USF College of Engineering).
