Joanna(Hays)Cielocha,daughter of Gary and Paula Hays of Shubert, has recently received notification that her National Science Foundation

Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant proposal has been recommended for funding. Joannas DDIG will involve field collections of tapeworms parasitizing stingrays off the Yucatan Peninsula and the Chesapeake Bay, MD. New collections will allow for specimens to be preserved for morphological examination using light microscopy, histology, scanning

electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy, as well as for molecular study. Joanna will also spend several weeks in the Institute of Parasitology, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, working with collaboratorsonthetransmissionelectronmicroscopecomponentofthis project.
