Eva Top, professor emerita, biological sciences, was awarded a National Science Foundation grant that will determine how horizontal gene transfer in a microbial community impacts the evolutionary trajectories of mobile antibiotic resistance genes. The spread of drug resistance to pathogens is influenced by horizontal gene transfer.
Former IMCI Post Doc, Lihong Zhao, will receive one year financial support from an AAI Intersect Fellowship for Computational Scientists and Immunologists. The fellowship provides independent research scientists with support for postdoctoral fellows to cross-train between computational science and basic immunological bench research.
