Dudley elected fellow of American Academy of Microbiology

Dr. Jaquelin Dudley, professor of molecular genetics and microbiology, has been elected a fellow in the American Academy of Microbiology. Dudley studies how retroviruses cause mammary tumors in mice, which is a model for breast cancer in humans. She's been developing a vector system for gene therapy of breast cancer, and in the process, her lab discovered a new viral protein that might help them study HIV.
