Congratulations to our Microbiology Undergraduate Award Winners! We are poud to highlight these talented students and their achievements
Jacques M. Chiller Award
The University of Washington Population Health Initiative announced the award of approximately $350,000 in COVID-19 rapid response grants to 21 different faculty-led teams. These teams are composed of individuals representing 10 different schools and colleges. Funding was partially matched by additional school, college and departmental funds, bringing the total value of these awards to roughly $820,000.
Monica Cesinger and Brittany Ruhland (both graduate students in the Reniere Lab) have first author papers accepted recently and will be published in the next few weeks. Brittany also had her painting accepted to be on the cover of the journal! According to Dr Reniere, "The watercolor painting by Brittany R. Ruhland represents the interaction between Spx (teal, left) and YjbH (pink, right). We found that the Listeria monocytogenes YjbH protein physically interacts with SpxA1. This watercolor will appear on the cover of the Journal of Bacteriology, vol. 202, no. 12."
