Todd Holmes receives UCI’s first Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award from the NIH

Physiology & biophysics professor Todd Holmes has received a five-year, $2.1 million Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences to study how insects process short-wavelength light in the ultraviolet-through-blue spectral range. This work builds on research from the Holmes lab published over the past few years in Science, Nature and […]
