Bethany College Faculty Member Jennifer Franko Receives Instrumentation Grant

Bethany College’s Dr. Jennifer Franko, assistant professor of biology, was in Charleston on Thursday to receive a $19,995 research instrumentation grant.

The award is a 2013 Instrumentation Grant given by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission’s Division of Science and Research.

Franko said one of the major factors that contributed to her position at Bethany was her desire to participate in the education and training of undergraduate students. She said obtaining support for research equipment through sources such as this will provide hands-on research training opportunities for students interested in pursuing careers in the biomedical field.
