We are examining the cell wall biosynthesis pathway is several bacterial strains, in particular to examine the response of cell wall intermediate levels to antibiotic exposure in antibiotic sensitive and resistant strains. Cell are collected, lysed, and UDP-linked and amino acid intermediated quantified by HPLC-MS.
Health Sciences Building, room 4240, 2464 Charlotte.
Basic laboratory skills.
Logistics and Compensation
At present no stipend is available, but this may change if funding permits. The School of Pharmacy does not have a course credit mechanism, but a students home department may have a mechanism that the student can use.
Primarily to help graduate students grow, treat, and collect bacterial samples. Prepare bacterial extracts for analysis. Perform amino acid derivatization reaction. Prepare samples for HPLC-MS analysis. Run LC-MS analyses, and collect and summarize results from these experiments.

I'm interested in this project. What should I do next?
Now that UR-Linked has helped you to identify a faculty project that interests you and for which you might be
qualified, be sure to review
the essential steps in contacting a potential faculty mentor
The Director of Undergraduate Research,
Dr. Jane Greer.
, can provide you with further guidance about finding
and connecting with faculty mentors at UMKC.
Once you have reviewed the essential steps to prepare for connecting
with a potential faculty mentor, you can use the "Contact Details" for this project to connect with the faculty
member and to begin a conversation about how you might get involved.
