Dr BaylesDr. IwenFaculty Receive Fellowship Award

An exceptional honor has been extended to the department this month because two of our faculty were elected as fellows of the American Academy of Microbiology (AAM).  The mission of the Academy is to recognize scientists for outstanding contributions to microbiology and provide microbiological expertise in the service of science and the public.  The process for selection includes a nomination by three current AAM fellows followed by an extensive review of accomplishments and contributions. 

Dr. Ken Bayles (top photo) was recognized for his pioneering work on bacterial programmed cell death.  Recent advances have revealed that bacteria are able to regulate death within their populations as a strategy for optimal development. As one of the founders of this proposal, Professor Bayles has spent his entire career studying the molecular mechanisms related to cell death and autolysis in gram-positive bacteria, predominantly Staphylococcus aureus. 

Dr. Pete Iwen (bottom photo) was recognized for his leadership in clinical microbiology and public health. Professor Iwen, who is the Director of the Nebraska Public Health Laboratory, has spent a considerable part of his career studying fungal and mycobacterial infections in immunocompromised populations, along the way isolating and naming two new Mycobacterium sp.; M. nebraskense and M. talmoniae.  Recent studies have focused on his leadership efforts related to the laboratory identification of Ebola virus disease. Drs. Bayles and Iwen will be recognized at the Academy Fellows Reception in New Orleans, on Friday, June 2 and their awards will be published in ASM Microbe. Read more
