Andrew Bright

Class of 2007
Major/Minor: Biology

Andrew worked in Professor Kate Verville’s biology lab.

The grant I received from the Cater Society of Junior Fellows allowed me to travel to Atlanta, Georgia, to attend the national annual meeting of the American Society for Microbiology in June of 2005. While at this meeting I was able to present my previous summer’s research, conducted at Washington College under the guidance of Dr. Kathleen Verville. Also at the meeting I was able to talk to other professionals within the various disciplines of microbiology and learn about current research in areas of interest to me. It was an incredible experience! I sincerely appreciate the Douglas Cater Society of Junior Fellows for giving me the opportunity to participate in such an exciting and thought-provoking meeting.
