Kayla Simanek Awarded APHL/CDC Antimicrobial Resistance Fellowship

Congratulations to Biological Sciences alumna Kayla Simanek (’19 MS) on being awarded the APHL/CDC Antimicrobial Resistance Fellowship!

The Antimicrobial Resistance Fellowship Program “provides scientists with the opportunity to collaborate on a range of antimicrobial resistance issues. The fellowship’s mission is to introduce scientists to public health laboratory science while building the workforce needed to detect and respond to existing and emerging forms of AR.”

Kayla will be researching carbapenem resistance in Acinetobacter at the Virginia Division of Consolidated Laboratory Services in Richmond, VA until June 2020. Great work, Kayla!
