Diana Murro Vice President of Finances
I'm a double major in Microbiology and Spanish with pre-med intentions. I've done research under Dr. R. Karls and Dr. Quinn in the Infectious Diseases department of UGA. My project is the creation of a transposon mutant library in Live Vaccine Strain Franciscella tularensis. F. tularensis is the bacterium that causes tularemia and is considered by the CDC to be a biological threat. I also did research at the Medical College of Georgia for two summers under Dr. S. Thompson, studying Campylobacter jejuni, the major cause of bacterial food poisoning in the United States.
Fun facts - I hiked the Andes Mountains in Northwest Argentina. I speak Spanish, French, Portuguese, Western Armenian, and just started studying Arabic. I'm fluent in Spanish and English.
