Congratulations to Kaylee Byers
Kaylee is a winner of the 2021 Bio One Ambassador Awards
Established in 2018, the annual BioOne Ambassador Award is given to early career researchers who can effectively communicate the importance and impact of their research to the public. The WDA as partner publisher of BioOne nominates individuals who are currently students or within 5yrs. post completion of their primary or secondary degree and have published or had their manuscript accepted for publication in JWD within the previous calendar year.
Kaylee was one of five early career scholars who advanced through this rigorous BioOne Ambassador Award competition. Nominees had to be in or within 5 years of completion of a graduate program and must have had their paper published in their association journal in 2020. Candidates were judged on a 750-word plain-language summary explaining “How does your research change the world”.
Kaylee’s summary: Location, Location, Location: Rats, Real Estate, and Public Health is based on her publication “Is Carriage of Leptospira Interrogans by Rats Influenced by the Urban Environment or Population Density?
