French-based CHROMagar Microbiology has selected Marian University student Paul Troung to receive an undergraduate research fellowship.

The CHROMagar fellowship will fund Troung's research on E.coli found on farms, specifically in the bedding and pastures of cows during the late winter and spring seasons. The E.coli being studied is related to bovine mastitis, a mammary gland infection found in cowsthat affects the milk they produce, costing farmers money.

The goal of Troung's research is that its results will help predict which populations of E.coli will predominate during the late winter and spring seasons. This may help to produce precautionary measures in order to diminish the threat of disease that could occur. The results of this research could impact many local farmers, as well as those throughout the Midwest.

Truong will be working with Dr. Susan Bornstein- Forst, professor of Biology at Marian, as both a mentor and a co-worker on the project.

CHROMagar, leaders in the chromogenic culture media technology, provides chromogenic cultures to many different fields, including quality control for food and drink, clinical bacteriology, and industrial microbiology.
