Scelza, Dr. Brooke Anne, U. of California, Los Angeles, CA - To aid research on 'Female Social Support in Productive and Reproductive Domains'
DR. BROOKE A. SCELZA, University of California, Los Angeles, California, was awarded a grant in April 2011 to aid research on 'Female Social Support in Productive Reproductive Domains.' Women around the world strive to balance the dual demands of production and reproduction. Often, they rely on one another for support in these endeavors. Previous research has shown that support networks are critical to the health and well-being of women and their children.

Rudzik, Dr. Alanna E. F., Durham U., Durham, UK - To aid research on 'The Development of Melatonin Rhythmicity and Sleep/wake Consolidation in Breastfed and Formula Fed Infants'
Preliminary abstact: This proposed research will investigate the development of the day/night rhythm of melatonin release in breastfed and formula fed infants. One hundred and fifty first-time mothers (75 breastfeeding and 75 formula feeding) and their full-term infants will be followed bi-weekly from 4 weeks to 18 weeks post-partum to observe the development of melatonin rhythm and sleep/wake patterns. Maternal and infant urine samples will be collected at each time-point for analysis of day/night differences in melatonin levels.

Ravosa, Dr. Matthew J., Northwestern U. Medical School, Chicago, IL - To aid conference on primate origins and adaptations, 2001, Northwestern U., in collaboration with Dr. Marian Dagosto
'Primate Origins and Adaptations,' December 13-15, 2001, Chicago, Illinois -- Organizers: Matthew J. Ravosa and Marian Dagosto (Northwestern University). Recent discoveries of fossil primates from the Eocene (36-55 mya) of Europe, North America, Asia, and Africa have greatly increased our knowledge of the diversity of the first primates as well as documenting a far broader spectrum of adaptations and body sizes than sampled previously.
