New faculty identified as promising young investigator

Kelley-J-2013-80PULLMAN, Wash. – Joanna Kelley, a new assistant professor in biological sciences, is one of 20 scientists worldwide named as promising young investigators in the annual list compiled by GenomeWeb publisher.

The early-career honorees were recommended by established principal investigators. Kelley was recommended by Carlos Bustamante, Stanford University School of Medicine.

In Kelley’s lab at Washington State University, research focuses on genetic changes as populations diverge and adapt to the (sometimes extreme) environments they encounter. Among other projects, her lab is comparing populations of fish that have adapted to live in hydrogen sulfide-rich waters.

A better understanding of population genomics could improve health diagnosis and treatment.
