Fellowship-winners-2016-1Ten undergraduate students from the faculties of Science and Health Sciences have been awarded the prestigious Michael G. DeGroote Institute for Infectious Disease Research (IIDR) Summer Student Fellowship, including our own Briony Lago (third from the right). This highly competitive fellowship, now in its fourth year and worth $1,000, is designed to support students working in the labs of IIDR members during their summer practicum, which runs from May to August. Briony Lago joined the lab as part of her McMaster Chemical Biology Co-Op program, working on our ‘Omic’ Responses & Inactivity in Aging project (a collaboration with colleagues in Kinesiology & Chemistry), our collaboration with Bates College on the role of Nfe2 in oxidative stress response during zebrafish development, and biocuration of our Comprehensive Antibiotic Resistance Database.
