Biology professor gives keynote address
Posted: Tuesday, August 23, 2016
Katie Aldred '09, assistant professor of biology, recently attended the Gordon Research Seminar and Conference on DNA Topoisomerases in Biology and Medicine at Sunday River in Newry, Maine. She was invited to give the keynote address at the seminar. She also sat on a career panel.
Aldred’s keynote address focused on her path to becoming a member of the faculty at UE and the UExplore-funded summer research on quinolone interactions with E. coli gyrase that she conducted this summer with biology students Hannah Carter and Baylee Wildman. The panel focused on various career paths that can be taken that maintain a focus on topoisomerase research and where the future of the topoisomerase field lies.
The Gordon Research Conferences and Seminars provide 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.
