Distinguished Undergraduate Researcher Award

Congratulations to the January Distinguished Undergraduate Researcher, Michael Greenberg!

Michael conducts research in the Chemistry department with Dr. Gerasimova. His current research topic involves designing and testing a DNA-probe that can detect the presence of E. coli and reveal its resistance to gentamicin. Michael’s motivation to succeed in this research project was to translate his passion for biochemistry and molecular biology for practical applications. Charge on!
