2009 ASPB Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship award announcement
Date:4/15/2009

mentor, Dr. David Hanson, for his encouragement and guidance in my development as a scientist, and for being my inspiration for studying plant biology.

Evan Pratt, Michigan State University Mentor: Susanne Hoffmann-Benning
Characterization of Novel Chloroplast Transporters in the C4 PlantMaize

It is very exciting to be able to continue my research over the summer through SURF. I would like to thank Dr. Hoffmann-Benning for getting me started in plant research and guiding me through the SURF application process. I look forward to learning much more from my research, as well presenting my findings in Montreal at the annual ASPB meeting in 2010.

David Seung, University of Sydney Mentor: Jan Marc
The interaction of abscisic acid and phospholipase D mediated pathways in environmental stress signaling: The role of the cytoskeleton

It is with great honor and excitement that I accept this award. I would like to thank my supervisor Dr. Jan Marc for his encouragement and the ASPB for supporting plant biology education, even at the international level. I am sure this is going to be an invaluable experience and I look forward to embarking on my project!

Shelley Sianta, Colorado State University Mentor: Patricia Bedinger
Analysis of an Emerging Lineage of Wild Tomato

I can't express how grateful and excited I am to be a SURF recipient. My project is evaluating a possible diverging lineage of a marginal population of the wild tomato species, Solanum habrochaites. I will be evaluating trends of reproductive isolation between the marginal population and a central, outcrossing population, and possible genes involved. I can't wait to get my tomatoes out in the field and start my crosses!

Liza Smith, University of Wollongong Mentor: Sharon Robinson
Does UV radiation induce screening compounds in Antarctic Bryophytes?

I am very honored to be a SURF recipient in 2009,
