Congratulations to Jose Amador for receiving the Bill Gates Millennium Scholarship! Jose conducted research in our lab last summer as part of the R.E.A.L. (Research, Experiment, Analyze, Learn) program for high school students. With the guidance of Casey Bethel, his teacher, and Sibel Kalyoncu, Jose worked on determining the effects of metal ions and pH on enzymatic activity of a deaminase from bacteria. He will be attending Emory University in the Fall.
