Dr. Jennifer Chase and cooperating teacher Marria Corriel have been awarded a Partners in Science grant from the MJ Murdock Charitable Trust. This grant program enables a high school teacher to pursue mentored research with a university professor for two summers. Mrs. Corriel teaches sciences at Glenn’s Ferry High School and is eager to delve into the field of bioinformatics. She will be characterizing the difference between several E. coli  strains and similar genes in the pathogenic E. coli O157:H7.

Marria joins two other Partners in Science teachers in their second summer at NNU. Tawny Olsen, from Victory Charter High School in Nampa, works with Dr. Jamee Nixon on a project looking at how incorrect antibiotic treatment of methicillin-resistant staphyloccus aureus (MRSA) can alter the response of the human immune system. Cynthia Lapp, from Nampa High, partners with Dr. Dan Lawrence in research titled “Digital Holographic Interferograms of Vibrating Objects.”
