Doornbos 2013Kathryn Doornbos, a graduate student in Dr. Michael Niederweis’s lab, is one of five graduate students to be awarded the 2013 Moses Sinkala Travel Scholarship.

“I'll be doing an 8-week collaboration with Wilbert Bitter at VU (Vrije Universiteit) in Amsterdam. Dr. Bitter has a well-established zebrafish embryo infection model for Mycobacterium marinum that enables detailed and rapid identification of phenotypes of mycobacterial mutants that would be difficult or impossible to observe in other animal models of mycobacterial diseases,” explains Doornbos.

Along with a monetary award, Doornbos will be honored at a luncheon on Monday, April 8th in UAB’s Edge of Chaos Atrium.

This prestigious travel award is presented by The Sparkman Center for Global Health to assist exemplary graduate and undergraduate students complete an international internship or research opportunity.
