Environmental Science & Ecology Professor Receives Research Grant
Dr. Jacques Rinchard received a research grant for $3,010 from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to quantify thiamine in the eggs of steelhead trout.
Thiamine deficiency has been observed in fish and wildlife in North America and Europe, and has been linked to neurological disorders, immunosuppression, and lower recruitment. This grant will allow students in Dr. Rinchard’s lab to assess thiamine concentrations in the eggs of steelhead trout from the Crystal Spring Hatchery prior to and after thiamine treatment, and from the French River.
The grant will be administer by The Research Foundation for SUNY Brockport under the Scholarship, Research, & Sponsored Programs Office.
