How One Student Went from Great Bay Community College to Researching Vibrio at UNH
“Jackie Lemaire is such a good example of what community colleges can do for bright, motivated students,” said Leslie Barber a biological science professor at Great Bay Community College. “Relatively quickly, she discovered a talent for sciences: something that our faculty also noticed. We encouraged her to pursue a major in the area of biological science, and to consider joining one of our research projects." She is currently working on a NH EPSCoR internship under Dr. Stephen Jones at UNH, testing oysters in Great Bay for the vibrio bacteria as part of the NEST project.
