oral deep sub-seafloor biosphere researchers; and translate knowledge of the deep sub-seafloor biosphere and ocean sciences to a broad and diverse community that includes K-12 children.

"The awarding of a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center to Katrina Edwards is a tremendous achievement for her and for her research team as they seek to understand the sub-ocean biosphere and the impact it has on the future of our planet," said Howard Gillman, dean of the College of Letters, Arts & Sciences. "USC College is proud to be the lead institution and home for the center and is committed to supporting transformative research and entrepreneurial faculty who work collaboratively across disciplines and institutional boundaries to advance the frontiers of science and tackle the major issues of our time."

Edwards believes the timing of the grant is on target.

"Given the maturity of the field and the significant advancement in technology, this is an ideal time to establish the center," she said. "My team and I are thrilled to receive this extraordinary opportunity to collaborate with scientists from around the globe as we pursue our ambitious scientific, education and diversity goals."

The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program in 2010-11 will dedicate drilling time to sample this frontier habitat in three different areas and habitats: the Southern Pacific Ocean, a site off the Pacific Northwest of North America and in the mid-Atlantic.

"These studies herald a dedicated effort by scientific ocean drilling to in the future study the limits of extreme life on Earth. This quest will also address the question of how life can evolve on terrestrial planets," said Hans Christian Larsen, vice president of the drilling program.

USC was one of five institutions to win a new Science and Technology Center award following a recent, merit-based competition in which 247 preliminary proposals had been received. In a statement f
