Dr. Marilu Santos and Biology Major Stephanie Edwards Present their Research at a National Conference (November 2010)
Biology major Stephanie Edwards and Biology faculty Dr. Marilu Santos presented a poster paper entitled “Prevalence of Phenol Resistant Bacteria in a Biochar Farm in Bladen County, NC” at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) in Charlotte, NC, on November 10 to 13, 2010. The study, funded by UNCP-RISE, established that 38% to 42% of facultative, anaerobic and capnophilic soil bacteria from the biochar farm carry phenol resistant genes.
The ABRCMS is a highly competitive national conference designed to encourage students to pursue advanced training in the biomedical sciences, behavioral sciences, or mathematics and to provide faculty mentors and advisors with resources for facilitating student success. Dr. Santos serves as abstract reviewer and judge for oral and poster presentations for the said conference.
