Joanna Slusky ‘01, an assistant professor at the University of Kansas, has been selected by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation as one of five aspiring inventors to comprise the inaugural cohort of Moore Inventor Fellows. Her proposed invention is a protein that will re-sensitize bacteria to common antibiotics, thereby overcoming drug-resistant superbugs. The invention could have a global impact on antibiotic resistance and re-establish the efficacy of antibiotics.

She graduated magne cum laude from Princeton with a A. B. in chemistry and conducted undergraduate research in the laboratory of Robert J. Cava.
