Jennifer Ginther, Grad Student from NAU, Named Student Regent by Governor
Governor Jan Brewer has appointed a new student representative to the Arizona Board of Regents.
Jennifer Ginther, a graduate student in biology at Northern Arizona University, comes with an impressive resume. We can't tell you how she'll do as a regent, but the 4.0 student knows a thing or two about microscopic organisms. Her research focuses on:
... the pathogenic evolution of Burkholderia pseudomallei, a soil-dwelling bacterium and the causative agent of melioidosis, a pulmonary or bloodstream infection and a major health concern in northern Australia and southeast Asia. Her ultimate goal is to merge computational and experimental comparative genomics to gain a better understanding of the emergence of disease-causing microbes from their non-disease-causing genetic relatives.
