Tyler Acton, undergraduate, Amy Jacobs, PhD.

Tyler Acton conducts research on the Zika virus under the guidance of Amy Jacobs, PhD, research associate professor of microbiology and immunology. “Working in Dr. Jacobs’ laboratory has been a great opportunity,” says Acton, a biomedical sciences major who plans to specialize in researching infectious diseases after medical school. “I’ve gotten to see how challenging — and exciting — research can be. It’s been an excellent experience and I’m thankful I’m able to contribute to her team.”
