During a December tour of College of Agriculture and Life Sciences facilities, U.S. Rep. Bob Etheridge peers at the microscopic subjects of research in the lab of Dr. JoAnn Burkholder, professor of botany, who looks on with Dean Johnny Wynne (All pictured above). Burkholder is director of the Center for Applied Aquatic Ecology, where her research team focuses on assessing and finding practical solutions to water quality problems.
