Ant chow

by Jeffrey Carter

Ant Chow.

Words I never thought I’d read or consider.

And yet consider I did this past week, as I sat on a panel with six other colleagues at Webster University, determining the results of funding applications for the Messing Award and the Faculty Research Grants, 2017-2018.

Some of the grant applications made total sense to me, but other took me a while to decipher.  One grant had to do with ants, and of course ants in a lab need ant chow.  Another had to do with bees, while another related to Armenian history, and another dealt with the history of the Silk Road in China.

I learned a great deal from serving on this panel, and I am continually amazed and energized by the breadth and depth of the work my colleagues do!
