2012 Class of 'Boettcher Investigators' Announced
4:11 pm edt
The Boettcher Foundation Board of Trustees has released the names of the three early-career scientists selected for
the third class of Boettcher Investigators in the Webb-Waring Biomedical Research Program.
Timothy W. Schultz,
President and Executive Director of the Boettcher Foundation, said "Through this program, the Boettcher Foundation has
been able to bring resources to an area where funds are currently lacking and where federal and private research programs
provide limited support. Early-career investigators quite frequently have a difficult time securing a first opportunity at
an independent research effort that will move them out of the laboratory of their mentors and onto their own new and exciting
areas of discovery."

Program includes: * Harald Junge, Ph.D. , University of Colorado at Boulder, Retinal Vascular Development

Molecular Mechanisms of Alzheimer's Pathology * Chad G. Pearson, Ph.D., University of Colorado

Blog Product Review - The Suburban Jungle: 'Organic Gardening with Fish Rich Fertilizer... Berries + Fish = Wow'
4:03 pm edt
Quoting Angela Maas in her May 16th blogpost about Fish Rich Organic Fertilizer:
"Last year, I used
Fish Rich fertilizer in my garden for the first time. You can read all about the origin of my Fish Rich experience here. I
have been gardening for a long time, and I have to tell you that using Fish Rich has changed the productivity of my garden
It's almost night and day. Actually, I'm embarrassed by how poorly my garden performed in the past.
If you want to see proof - check out the post I wrote last fall titled 'Berries + Fish = Wow!!' Yes, that's a lame title,
but it pretty much explains it all! I have never had so many berries. And it didn't stop with last year.
raspberries went wild! They multiplied like crazy and are full of flower buds. They basically sat there and did nothing for
4 years straight, now they are all over. Link to the Suburban Jungle Blog
