SCHOLL AWARD - Carmela Rios

Sponsored by the Dr. Scholl Foundation, this award goes to a graduate student who has performed outstanding research as demonstrated by the submission/publication of a first author manuscript in a peer-reviewed journal.

Carmela Rios Scholl Award

 

“Functional Analysis of microRNA pathway genes in the Somatic Gonad and Germ Cells During Ovulation in C. elegans” was accepted for publication in Developmental Biology in April 2017.

Carmela Rios' work addresses a gap in the field of how microRNA pathway genes function to control the process of ovulation, with a focus on the somatic gonad cells as well as the germ cells. The main findings of the work are that microRNA biogenesis is required in the somatic gonad cells to maintain sheath cell contractions prior to ovulation. This suggests regulation of the IP3 pathway, which will be the focus of future work.

 

 

OLIVER H. SMITH ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AWARD - Britt Wyatt

This award recognizes exceptional academic achievement by a graduate student in the Ph.D. program. This award will be based on grade point average (GPA), research activity and scholarly achievements.

 

Britt Wyatt Smith Award

Britt Wyatt’s research aims to find, develop, and characterize novel inhibitors of bacterial pyruvate carboxylase (PC) activity that can be used as the foundation for antibiotic drug development. An equally important part of her development as a graduate student is her commitment to undergraduate education and science outreach programs.
