This past summer, Kirsten Allen, an undergraduate PBIO minor, participated in the Summer Undergraduate Research Program at the University of Kentucky's College of Pharmacy under her PI, Dr. Steven Van Lanen. She engaged in antibiotic drug discovery research isolating natural products from bacteria and characterizing enzymes involved in their synthesis - specifically new types of sulfotransferases used to build the bacterial cell wall. In the future, Kirsten plans to conduct more research in grad school centered around drug discovery from plants and other natural products.
