Mason Frederickson | His DNA Summer Job

What did you do this summer? Mason Frederickson created DNA biosensors.

Mason FredericksonMOSCOW, Idaho – Mason Frederickson, a University of Idaho senior? from Coeur d'Alene, spent his summer developing biosensors to detect DNA sequences, essentially genes, from four bacterial disease agents, E. coli, salmonella, listeria and campylobacter.

As a Idaho Biomedical Conference fellow, Ferderickson received a $5,000 stipend to spend 10 weeks this summer working in University of Idaho DNA chemist Patrick Hrdlicka's lab.

"In the whole research experience, I've met a lot of cool people, really intelligent people," Frederickson said. "It's cool to see them and how motivated they are and it rubbed off on me. You get excited about the research experience."  Read More
