Environmental Health Grad Student Awarded Research Grant

Environmental Health graduate student, Kimberlee Hall, has received notification from the ETSU Graduate Council that her research proposal, “Observational Survey for Toxoplasma gondii in the Sinking Creek Watershed using PCR Amplification,” has been approved for maximum funding.


Ms. Hall’s proposal was approved to support her work toward the thesis requirement in the Environmental Health graduate program and will allow her to integrate her research interests in microbiology, parasitology and microbiology into one thesis. The Sinking Creek Watershed was selected for the study because of its EPA listing as impaired, which indicates that it may be a source of pathogen exposure. The watershed supports the beneficial uses of agriculture including livestock watering and wildlife, recreation, and irrigation, all of which are modes of transmission for Toxoplasma gondii, a disease causing parasite.
