|The National Institutes of Health Center for Scientific Review has chosen UT Arlington assistant biology professor Julian Hurdle to serve on a prestigious study section, one of the bodies that reviews grant applications, makes recommendations and surveys the status of research in a particular field.
Hurdle, a specialist in molecular microbiology and bacterial infectious diseases, will serve on the Drug Discovery and Mechanisms of Antimicrobial Resistance Study Section through June 30, 2017.
"Dr. Hurdle is an accomplished researcher who is working hard to build a better understanding of the role bacteria play in disease," said Pamela Jansma, dean of the College of Science.
