Three College proposals for targeted FY11 federal funding have been included on the OSU Federal Agenda. These include requests for continuing funding in support of two projects directed by Dr. Morrie Craig: “Bioremediation of munitions residues” and “Degradation of tall fescue and perennial ryegrass endophyte toxins by anaerobic ruminal microbes.” The third project, “Mycobacterial diseases research program” directed by Dr. Luiz Bermudez, is a new request that seeks $1.3M in support of establishing a multidisciplinary and international research infrastructure that will capitalize on existing research and promote development of a comprehensive research program addressing the complex interaction of infectious, environmental and socioeconomic factors involved in mycobacterial diseases. Dr. Cyril Clarke visited with Representative Kurt Schrader on Jan. 4 to discuss the College requests. Congressional staffers representing Oregon’s federal representatives and senators visited the College on January 19 to learn more about the mycobacterial diseases project.
