Biology professor and student present research
Posted: Monday, August 20, 2018
Katie Aldred ’09, University of Evansville assistant professor of biology, and Remi Hoerr, senior biology major, recently attended and presented their research at the Gordon Research Seminar on DNA Topoisomerases in Biology and Medicine.
Hoerr’s poster was titled “Quinolone-Topoisomearse Interactions and Resistance: Does the Water-Metal Ion Bridge Play a Role in Staphylococcus aureus topoisomerase IV?” Aldred’s poster was titled “Development, Optimization, and Implementation of an Assay to Measure Intracellular Cleavage Complex Formation in Bacteria.”
Two biology students were co-authors on the poster presented by Aldred - Olivia Voegerl, senior biology and exercise science major, and Addie Payne, sophomore biology major.
Both research projects were funded through UExplore. The Gordon Research Conference and Seminar series provides an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, and physical sciences, and their related technologies with a focus on presentation and discussion of pre-publication research.
