Former UMaine Professor Sidell Mentioned in VSU Article on Antarctic Research

Bruce Sidell, a former University of Maine professor and founding director of the university’s School of Marine Sciences who passed away in 2011, was mentioned in a Valdosta State University article about an international research team studying in Antarctica. Theresa Grove, a comparative physiologist and biochemist, and associate professor in the Department of Biology at Georgia’s VSU, was invited to participate in a three-month research study at Palmer Station, according to the article. Grove will join Kristin O’Brien from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and Lisa Crockett from Ohio University, the article states. “One interesting note about the research team is that Kristin, Lisa and I earned our Ph.D.’s from the University of Maine under the guidance of Dr. Bruce D. Sidell, a leader in the field of fish physiology and cold adaptation. As academic siblings, we are looking forward to again working together in Antarctica,” Grove said.
