UKCOP Undergraduate Researcher Presents at Harvard
Mar 28, 2014
Ashley Arlinghaus, a University of Kentucky undergraduate who is conducting research in the laboratory of faculty member Steven Van Lanen, was invited to attend the National Collegiate Research Conference (NCRC) at Harvard University in late January to present a research poster.
Arlinghaus’ poster was selected from “400 competitive applications,” according to NCRC.
Arlinghaus, who is from Burlington, Kentucky, is an Agricultural Biotechnology major in UK’s College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. Her poster was entitled “Biosynthesis of Aminoglycosides to Circumvent Antibiotic Resistance."
“Ashley is an exemplary undergraduate student and has obtained some exciting results from her research here at the UK College of Pharmacy,” said Dr. Van Lanen, an Associate Professor in the College’s Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. “Not only is she an excellent student with a promising future ahead, she is diligent and motivated. Ashley will do great things in science.”
The NCRC offers “a platform for undergraduates from across the nation to share their interest in research."
Arlinghaus has accepted an offer to pursue her PhD in the College’s Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduate Program.
