Palmisano Joins DOE OBER
On July 20 Anna Palmisano, a microbiologist and microbial ecologist, joined the Environmental Sciences Division of the DOE Office of Biological and Environmental Research. In her new position, Palmisano will continue her program management activities for the Natural and Accelerated Bioremediation Research program, the Microbial Genome Program, and such biological aspects of ocean sciences as the Biotechnological Investigations Ocean Margins Program. She worked on these projects for 9 months in 1997 as a detailee from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), where she served as a program officer in environmental biology for 6 years. Before joining ONR, she conducted research on biodegradation in freshwater streams, soils, and landfills for the Environmental Science Department of Procter & Gamble company.
Palmisano received her B.S. in microbiology from the University of Maryland and M.S. and Ph.D. in biology from the University of Southern California, where she studied the physiological adaptation of microorganisms in Antarctica. She was a National Research Council postdoctoral fellow in planetary biology at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Ames Research Center, investigating the biogeochemistry of mat-like structures formed by microbes.
