Fox Glen Award

2022 Fox Glen Research and Education Fund Award Recipient: Logan Geyman

Logan Geyman is a member of Associate Professor Julia van Kessel’s lab. Since his freshman year, Logan has studied the phenomena of bacterial communication called quorum sensing in Vibrio bacteria. During his time in this group, Logan has worked on building and establishing a CRISPR-based genetic tool for genetic manipulation. This has been done to better understand how diseases like cholera and the flesh-eating Vibrio vulnificus communicate to make humans sick. After graduation, Logan will continue to study quorum sensing as a direct admit to Indiana University’s Microbiology Ph.D. program.
