Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics Graduate Student Earns Top Honors at Research and The State
Ashish Kumar, doctoral student in biochemistry, won top honors at Research and the State graduate student poster session for "Fluorescence Assays for Detection, Discrimination and Quantification of Siderophores" on October 31. He will receive a small scholarship and be one of 10 graduate students to represent K-State at the 17th annual Capitol Graduate Research Summit, February 26, 2020, at the State Capitol in Topeka. He will present his poster and discuss the implications his work has on issues in the state of Kansas with state legislators, members of the Kansas Board of Regents, and the public. Kumar's faculty advisor is Phillip Klebba, university distinguished professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics. K-State News
