Julie Wagner, a College of Western Idaho (CWI) student studying Biology, was awarded best student poster at the 61st annual Idaho Academy of Science and Engineering Symposium on April 13, 2019, for her work entitled “Enzymatic Analysis of Novel Giardia Intestinalis MTA Nucleosidase Inhibitors”. Wagner research was supported by the Idaho INBRE Program where she worked with Dr. Ken Cornell at Boise State University during the summer of 2018.
Wagner’s interest in research and molecular biology and biochemistry and her goal to become a researcher began as a participant in the College’s INBRE Summer Scholars program in 2017 with Dr. Suzanne Oppenheimer.
Following graduation from CWI this spring, Wagner plans to transfer to Boise State University where she will continue working in Dr. Cornell’s lab with support from the Southwestern Idaho Bridges to Baccalaureate program.
Congratulations, Julie, on your recent award, and best of luck as you continue your education and research. The CWI community is proud of you!
