The American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) announces Amy Schroeder, a senior biology major from Ballwin, Mo., is one of the recipients of the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship 2007. Fifteen students mentored by members of ASPB were selected to receive the fellowship. The $3,000 fellowship permits each student to devote full-time effort to his or her research project for a 10-week period during the summer. The award also includes $500 to the mentor for lab supplies, a free student membership in ASPB until August 2008, and travel grant assistance to attend the 2008 ASPB Plant Biology meeting. There were 24 Category A (research and doctoral universities) applicants and 10 Category B (master’s universities, baccalaureate colleges, and associate of art colleges) applicants for a total of 34 highly competitive projects. Schroeder received one of the Category A awards for the project titled “Roles of Conserved Serine and Tyrosine Residues in the Active Site of Tyrosine Ammonia-Lyase.” Joseph Jez of the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center in St. Louis will serve as Schroeder’s research mentor.
