Advancing the Search for Life

October 17, 2018

WHOI Postdoctoral Fellow Elizabeth Trembath-Reichert was chosen by L’Oréal USA to receive one of five 2018 For Women in Science Fellowships, each of which provides $60,000 to a female postdoctoral scientist to help advance her research. Trembath-Reichert studies the ecosystem below the Earth’s surface to determine how life sustains itself in harsh conditions such as extreme pressure, temperature, or darkness. Her research on microbes could provide insights into how life evolved on Earth and where it could exist beyond our planet.(Courtesy of L’Oréal USA)
