Ph.D. Student Wins NSF Fellowship

Posted on: April 24, 2019

Jane Pascar, a Ph.D. student in biology, is a 2019 recipient of the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. Based in Syracuse's Center for Reproductive Evolution, she will use the fellowship to analyze microbial sequencing data from the world’s deadliest insect: the mosquito. “I hope to contribute to more effective preventative methods to help stop the spread of dangerous diseases, such as malaria,” says Pascar, one of three such Fellows from the University. Julia Giannini, a graduate student in physics, earned honorable mention.
