Truc Le (center), a senior in Interdisciplinary Programs, was recognized at the 28th Annual Western Photosynthesis Conference held last week in Friday Harbor, Washington. Her poster titled, Application of Exogenous Polyamines Attenuate the Effects of Abiotic Stress on Photosynthesis in the Aquatic Monocots, Lemna minor 370 AND Spirodela polyrhiza 432, won Best Poster Award (undergraduate category).

Truc began working for Dr. Barry Bruce (BCMB) in Bruce Lab in 2017, where she still works as an undergraduate researcher.

Bruce Lab works on aspects of membrane biochemistry related to photosynthesis. If you are a motivated undergraduate interested in getting involved in Bruce Lab, reach out to Dr. Barry Bruce directly.
