Brokesh wins undergraduate research scholarship
Sophomore student Anna Brokesh was awarded a $3,955 K-INBRE (Kansas IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence) Undergraduate Research Scholarship to work with faculty mentor Dr Richard Todd.  She will use the genetic model fungus Aspergillus nidulans to characterize a new factor that turns off nitrogen metabolic genes when nitrogen nutrients are plentiful. Regulation of metabolic genes in fungal pathogens allows adaptation to the nutrients available in the host during infection.
