Hi,

All right, it is time now for one of life's big questions. Do tomatoes belong in the refrigerator? Turns out, there is new scientific research to justify leaving them out on the counter. NPR's Dan Charles has more.

(This is a transcript from npr.org Forget Tomayto/Tomahto: The Real Debate Is, Should It Be Refrigerated? on October 17, 2016.)

Is 'to justify...' a appositive to 'research'? Does the sentence mean 'there is new scientific research which justifies ...'?

Thanks in advance!
