Van Gray awarded USGS Water Resources Research Act Program funds

Submitted by Kris Boone,

Dr. Jon Van Gray has received a grant of nearly $30,000 to fund a water research project entitled "The use of shotgun metagenomics to longitudinally track stream resistome dynamics: From headwaters to wastewaters." Witter is the sole PI. The research addresses the issue of monitoring internal phosphorous loading by investigating how electrochemical sensors could help track the release of phosphate from sediments in Lake Erie.

The USGS Water Resources Research Act Program funds water research through established state water research centers/institutes. The Ohio Water Research Center ( distributes these funds to support peer-reviewed research on state water resource issues.
