Zach Howard to Deliver Undergraduate Research Presentation at Drosophila 2017

Feb 23, 2017

School of Molecular Biosciences undergraduate researcher Zach Howard was selected as one of five presenters during the “Spotlight on Undergraduate Research” segment of the Genetics Society of America’s Drosophila 2017 conference (http://www.genetics-gsa.org/drosophila/2017/pages/sessionlisting/Workshops.shtml#sess301). The March 2017 event in San Diego, CA will gather researchers who employ this model system to study biological systems. Zach has been working in the laboratory of Dr. Alan Goodman (http://goodmanlab.com), identifying genes associated with the innate immune responses. Zach’s laboratory research is part of the School’s Students Targeted towards Research Studies (STARS) program (http://www.smb.wsu.edu/academic-training/undergraduate-studies/stars-program). Congratulations Zach!
