Former WMHS Students Discover Bacteria:
Represent ULM at Howard Hughes Medi
OPSB News 2013 West Monroe High School graduates Kyle Gresham and Grant Gallien were selected to represent the University of Louisiana at Monroe’s Biology Department at a symposium held at Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Campus in Virginia. Kyle and Grant accompanied professors from ULM to present their findings at the symposium after discovering an unidentified bacteriophage (virus) that infects bacteria. Kyle found the virus in a soil sample taken from under a bridge on the ULM campus, and given the opportunity to name the new virus, chose “Hobo” as its name. The young men presented their findings to students and faculty from various universities from across the country.

​During their stay at Howard Hughes, both young men were privileged to hear a Nobel laureate speak, and meet many other students interested in biology and the medical field. Kyle and Grant say they are honored to have been chosen to represent their university in this way, and are thankful for this opportunity.
