Multicellularity research receives John Templeton Foundation award

Michael Travisano's research on multicellularity has received a three-year funding award from the John Templeton Foundation. The award will expand his research to look across a broad variety of species and examine the propensity for multicellularity. In nature, multicellularity evolved from many different unicellular species (at least 25) and Travisano is studying how having a different unicellular ancestors affects evolved multicellular descendants. Also involved in the project are Mark Borello (EEB), Tony Dean (BTI) and former postdoc Will Ratcliff.
