MBL scientist Julie Huber receives 2007 LOral USA Fellowship for Women in Science

MBL, WOODS HOLE, MAMBL (Marine Biological Laboratory) Assistant Scientist Dr. Julie Huber has been selected to receive a $40,000 fellowship as part of the L'Oreal USA Fellowships for Women in Science Program. Laurent Attal, President and CEO, L'Oral USA, and Dr. Ralph J. Cicerone, President, National Academy of Sciences honored Dr. Huber and four other young women researchers, at a ceremony today (May 24, 2007) at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

Dr. Huber is a researcher in the MBLs Josephine Bay Paul Center for Comparative Molecular Biology and Evolution where she investigates microbial communities within the subseafloor, a largely undiscovered environment that represents a unique and ubiquitous habitat on Earth. Due to the challenges of understanding this habitat, a range of techniques must be applied to every sample to advance scientists knowledge of resident microbial communities. Dr. Hubers research applies a combined molecular diversity, metagenomic, and geochemical approach to provide a window into this world. Her work is a part of the International Census of Marine Microbes, a project of the Census of Marine Life, a 10-year global initiative started to assess and explain the diversity, distribution, and abundance of life in the oceanspast, present, and future.

The MBL is extremely proud of Julie and congratulates her on this remarkable accomplishment, said MBL Director and CEO Gary G. Borisy. The MBL has a long history of educating and training some of the worlds most distinguished women scientists. Julies successful past and promising future continues this tradition and sets a wonderful example for young investigators everywhere.

As part of her LOral USA Fellowship grant, Dr, Huber will be studying large insert DNA libraries, which will allow her to understand the metabolic capacity, genomic context, and phylogenetic relationships of subseafloor communities. This new application of metagenomics t
