Ami Ahern-Rindell, biology, accompanied 2014 biology graduate Kylie Leffler to Washington, DC, to participate in “Posters on the Hill,” a highly selective competition sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research. They traveled to the competition from April 27-30. The collaborative research conducted by Leffler and Ahern-Rindell, who served as her research mentor, was outlined in a poster entitled “Sequence Analysis of Exons 13 and 14 of the PPBG gene from Normal and GM1-Gangliosidosis Affected Sheep.” Kylie and Ahern-Rindell also arranged meetings with Senator Ron Wyden and Representative Earl Blumenauer to impress upon them the importance of funding for undergraduate research. They had an opportunity to attend a panel discussion conducted by presidential staff members in the White House. For more information contact Ahern-Rindell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
