Janine Bennett (senior, biology) was awarded the nationally-competitive 2016 American Society for Microbiology-Undergraduate Research Fellowship (ASM-URF) for $5000. The fellowship is aimed at highly competitive students who wish to pursue graduate careers (Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) in microbiology.
As part of the fellowship, she will receive a stipend for completing a research project this summer and presenting her research at the ASM Microbe meeting in New Orleans next June.
Thanks also goes to Eric Link, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Frank Paladino, chair and professor of biology, for providing supplemental funding.
