Geoffrey Bader is taking a break from his medical record duties this summer to head off to Hawaii as part of a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship from the American Society of Plant Biologists. This award will allow him to dedicate full-time effort to a research project for a ten-week period this summer, and provides the opportunity to present his results at the Society's annual meeting in Hawaii. The study, titled "Uptake and Efflux of Auxin and the Polar Auxin Transport in Land Plant Gametophytes," is under the direction of Dr. DorothyBelle Poli, assistant professor of biology. Geoff is the first Roanoke student to be honored with this prestigious fellowship.
