The Integrated Training in Microbial Systems (ITiMS) program awarded doctoral student Emily Crossette with a $10,000 mini-grant to evaluate the dynamics of antimicrobial resistant genes in manure management systems.

The ITiMS program trains future scientists who will design and implement novel prevention, diagnostic, and treatment strategies stemming from a deep understanding of the impact of microbial communities on human and environmental health.

Crossette’s interests lie in resource recovery from animal and human wastewater, the environmental fate of emerging contaminants and antibiotic resistance genes, source separated wastewater treatment, and environmental public health. Crossette is co-advised by Professors Lutgarde Raskin and Krista Wigginton.
