Grad student wins top student award for groundbreaking fungus research
Published on September 25 2013
PhD student Scott Behie has had one heck of a year. Last June, his research was published in Science, one of the world’s top scientific publications. This August, he achieved what no Canadian student has done: snagged a top-notch, international student award from the Society of Invertebrate Pathology.
“It’s nice to know that other people in similar fields are saying, you know what, this is really neat. This isn’t just at Brock where we find this research interesting,” Behie says of winning the Mauro E. Martignoni Student Award.
“There’s lots of people in the field who are taking note of what Brock’s doing and that’s very encouraging.”
