CWC student earns award for West Nile

Jul 22, 2012 - From staff reports

Central Wyoming College graduate Jonathon McFall of Pavillion was the recipient of an IDeA Development Award for Student Travel at the fourth biennial National IDeA Symposium of Biomedical Research Excellence.

The award recognizes students involved in biomedical research and provides $1,000 to help defray the cost of attending the Washington, D.C. conference held June 25-27.

Dr. Sidney A. McNairy Jr. and Patricia Hand of the Mount Desert Island Biological Center presented the award to McFall, a member of the CWC undergraduate research team studying West Nile virus in Fremont County.

McFall was the only recipient from a community college, and the award was based on a meritorious abstract he submitted and a poster presentation.

Science professor Steve McAllister accompanied members of the team to the conference where scientists and students shared their ideas and scientific investigation.
