On April 20th, the annual spring conference for the Hawaii Branch of the American Society for Microbiology was held. Robin Kaai presented a poster in the undergraduate division, while Codi Wong gave an oral presentation in the same division. Please note that Thomas Premeaux was coauthor on Robin’s poster and a major contributor to Codi’s project. Codi was given a travel award, which is perfect timing as she will also be presenting at the national ASM conference in Denver late next month. Be sure to congratulate them on their hard work!!!!
