Encyclopedia of Life names Dr. Rebecca Johnson a 2011 Rubenstein Fellow
Date:1/13/2011

Dr. Rebecca Johnson, a postdoctoral researcher and sea slug expert at the California Academy of Sciences, has been named one of 16 Rubenstein Fellows by the Encyclopedia of Life (EOL). These early-career scientists will use EOL as a platform for sharing their biodiversity research with colleagues and the general public.

The Encyclopedia of Life (www.eol.org) is an international collaboration that aims to provide freely accessible information about all of the 1.9 million known species on our planet. EOL Rubenstein Fellows awards are made possible through a generous donation by David M. Rubenstein to the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History. The program provides partial stipend or salary support for early-career scientists who wish to use EOL as a platform for outreach and encouraging other young scientists to do the same. More than 60 fellowships are expected to be awarded over the four years of the program, which began in 2010.

Johnson began her career at the California Academy of Sciences 15 years ago, first as a post-college intern, then as a master's and Ph.D. student under the guidance of Dr. Terry Gosliner, curator of invertebrate zoology at the Academy. Her specialty is chromodorid nudibranchs (also known as sea slugs), a family of about 300 species that display beautiful, vivid colors and live in tropical shallow waters worldwide. These Technicolor invertebrates aren't just notable for their brazen beautythey are also a potential source of medical treatments for a variety of human ailments, from heart disease to cancer. In addition to working as postdoctoral researcher at the Academy, Johnson also works with the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary to train tide pool naturalists at Duxbury Reefa marine protected area in Marin Countyand contributes to the Academy's exhibits and education programs, including a recent display on the Farallon Islands.
