Biological Sciences graduate student Rebecca Keogh was recently named the 2019-20 recipient of the Donald Clippinger Graduate Fellowship awarded by the Graduate College at Ohio University.

Keogh is a microbiology graduate student in Biological Sciences working under the mentorship of Dr. Ronan Carroll, Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at Ohio University.

Her project, titled “Analysis of PPlase enzymes in Staphylococcus aureus,” hopes to better understand antibiotic resistance exhibited by this microorganism. This is a significant public health problem in the United States.

The fellowship provides a service-free stipend of $15,000 and provides a full tuition scholarship for both fall and spring semesters, which will allow Keogh to concentrate on her research project.
