NDSU researcher receives highly competitive award

Published October 2015

NDSU researcher Peter Bergholz has earned a prestigious National Science Foundation CAREER award.

The competition is intense. Only the most promising junior faculty scholars are chosen.

As a recipient, Bergholz demonstrated outstanding research, excellent teaching and the ability to combine education and research to further the mission of NDSU.

He is an assistant professor in the Department of Veterinary and Microbiological Sciences. The five-year award of up to $810,000 will enable Bergholz and a team of students to study how bacteria survive, thrive and adapt when added to a different soil environment.

The power to predict how bacteria evolve could help us develop new biotechnology or fight against the emergence of new infectious diseases, Bergholz said.
