UDaily: UD postdoctoral researcher receives USDA grant to study arsenic uptake by rice

The University of Delaware’s Matt Limmer has been awarded a two-year United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Post Doctoral Fellowship to study uptake of organic forms of arsenic in rice. 

Limmer is a postdoctoral researcher in the laboratory of Angelia Seyfferth, assistant professor in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences in UD’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

He said working with Seyfferth is a great benefit because she previously has examined inorganic forms of arsenic, while his interest is in the organic forms.
