Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF)
Recipients for 2002

In this second year of the ASPB Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program, eight students have been selected to receive $3,000 grants in order to conduct independent investigations during the summer of 2002. They will then present their research at the 2003 ASPB annual meeting to be held in Hawaii. The students' mentors receive an additional $500 towards supplies and materials.

There were 29 qualified applicants this year . The reviewers were impressed by the quality of the applicants' projects and the commitment of all the students and their mentors to their ongoing research. This program is co-chaired by Jon Monroe, James Madison University and Mark Brodl, Trinity University.

Following are the ASPB 2002 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Award Winners:

Renee BaackRenee Baack, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE
Project: Identificantion and Characterization of Formate Dehydrogenase Induced Pigment in Tobacco
Mentor: John Markwell

I am thrilled to be selected for this excellent opportunity, and I am looking forward to the learning experience this summer will provide.

Adam Jared BoothAdam Jared Booth, Kenyon College, Gambier, OH
Project: Identification of second site modifiers of elf3 using activation tagging
Mentor: Karen Hicks

I am extremely excited to have been selected as a recipient of the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship from the American Society of Plant Biologists. This award will allow me to further investigate my current research interest, identifying new genes involved in photoperiodic flowering. I am very grateful to be given such a great honor and opportunity and look forward to presenting the results of my efforts.

Melinda HanesMelinda Hanes, Penn State Erie - The Behrend College, PA
Project: Investigating Branched Chain Amino Acid Metabolism by Analyzing Arabidopsis bcat Mutants
Mentor:Michael Campbell

The opportunity to conduct research full-time over the summer is a rewarding and valuable experience, which is crucial for my graduate study and research goals in biochemistry. Metabolism is an exploding area of current biochemical research that I am excited to be a part of. I am delighted to have been chosen to receive a fellowship from the ASPB.

Anne KnowltonAnne Knowlton, Clemson University, SC
Project: Disruption of auxin signaling in a nodulating legume
Mentor: Julia Frugoli

I am thrilled to have received this award, and I am anxiously awaiting my research this summer. Thanks to all who made this program possible.

Nicole MammarellaNicole Mammarella, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, VA
Project: Expression of Resistance Genes in Arabidopsis thaliana during Peronospora Parasitica infection
Mentor: John McDowell

I'm thrilled to have been chosen as a recipient of an ASPB Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship. It really is an honor to receive this fellowship, and I'm grateful to receive the support and recognition that accompany this award. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to continue my present research through the summer and would like to thank the ASPB for their generosity in supporting undergraduate research through this program.

Michael McCaslandMichael McCasland, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Project: Characterization of AtMYB50 expression in relation to cytokinin
Mentor: Joseph Kieber

Thank you for allowing me to take part in such an honor, leading me into a possible life-long opportunity. I am grateful for being accepted in this program and will be working diligently.

Lisa Rachel RackiLisa Rachel Racki, Harvard College, Cambridge, MA
Project: Elucidating NPR1-Independent SAR Induction in Arabidopsis thaliana with Pseudomonas Syringae and Erysiphe orontii: A Novel Gene and Possibly a New Pathway
Mentor: Frederick Ausubel

I am so thrilled to have been chosen for the Society of Plant Biologists Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship! Many thanks for this great honor and tremendous opportunity.

Elizabeth StollElizabeth Stoll, Washington University in St. Louis, MO
Project: Cloning of an Activation-tagged Suppressor of an Arabidopsis phyB Mutation
Mentor: Michael Neff

I was so excited when I received the email that I had earned the American Society of Plant Biologists Fellowship. I had been out of town the entire weekend for a track meet and kept having my family check my email for me, because I felt like we should be finding out soon. When I returned home from the meet, it was the first email I saw and I nervously clicked on the subject, wondering what it would say. When I read CONGRATULATIONS I was so happy!! I feel very honored to have received this award. My father is a farmer and he is very proud that I am interested in plants and have the desire to work in agriculture. Receiving this award provides a wonderful opportunity to me for this summer. I cannot wait for classes to get over so that I can begin spending my "whole days" in the lab. I am looking forward to learning so much from my mentor and cannot wait to see what type of mutant plants I identify. Thank you very much for this opportunity!!!

Honorable mentions went to five other students:

Daniel Cushing, Whitman College, Walla Walla, WA, Mentor: Daniel Vernon

Brendan O'Meara, University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, Mentor: Sue Wick

Valeska Okragly, Lawrence University, Appleton, WI, Mentor: Debra Mohnen

Michelle Lynn Sarchfield, University of New Brunswick, Canada, Mentor: Dion Durnford

Nicholas Stephens, University of Washington, Seattle, Mentor: Elizabeth VanVolkenburgh
