Alumni News

Jordan  Barrows (BS in Biochemistry, 2017)  I recently started in the Goley lab at Johns Hopkins, where I will be working in Caulobacter crescentus to further our understanding of the mechanisms underlying bacterial cell growth and division. I am also enrolling in the Johns Hopkins Teaching Academy to continue my pedagogical training and gain hands-on experience with teaching and mentoring in and out of the classroom.
Bobby Betteron (BS in Chemistry; BS in Molecular & Cellular Biology, 2018)  I ended up getting hired in Dr. Patrick Ronaldson's lab. I also was accepted to the graduate certificate program in Microbiology and Medical Immunology here at the UA for the fall semester. I am going to do that for a year and try to get some work experience in industry while applying to a PhD program in either Drug Development/Discovery or Medical Pharmacology.
