Southeast Student Exploring E. Coli DNA Replication in NSF Summer Research

Adrienne Brauer knows all about preparation, cadence, tempo and pace as a long-distance runner on the cross country and track teams at Southeast Missouri State University. This summer, though, she's repurposing those skills off the course in a National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) at Washington University in St. Louis where she's working with Dr. Petra Levin, biology professor and co-director of the plant and microbial biosciences graduate program, putting in the hours, preparing for graduate school and earning the experience for a career centered in microbiology research.
