Florida A&M student wins recognition for innovative research
During a six-month research project at FAMU’s Center for Viticulture and Small Fruit Research, Hall successfully cloned the Flavanone 3’ Hydroxylase (F3’H) gene. That accomplishment is commercially significant because it will help expedite efforts to exploit the unique nutritional benefits of muscadine grapes, which have one of the highest antioxidant levels among fruits.
Hall’s breakthrough work will aid in the production of nutraceuticals that will be made available to consumers in the future. She is also in the process of writing a manuscript on her findings.
Hall’s work is the latest benchmark in an ongoing project at FAMU led by Violeta M. Tsolova, a professor of viticulture and developmental biology in the Center for Viticulture Science and Small Fruit Research, which has pioneered efforts to gain commercial advantage from the health benefits of the popular grapes.
Anthony Ananga, an FAMU research associate and food biotechnologist, said Hall’s accomplishments are especially significant because she completed Ph.D. or professional level research while only an undergraduate student.
Hall’s research talents earned her a summer internship in Athens, Ga., with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Services. She is also a National USDA 1890 Scholar, which provides her with a scholarship, research-related internships and an opportunity to work with the USDA upon graduation.
Hall knew nothing about muscadine grapes when she transferred to FAMU in the spring of 2012 after a brief stint at Indian River State College in south Florida. Before that, she attended Louisiana Tech.
Taking Tsolova’s biotechnology course “opened up a whole new world to me,” Hall said. “What happened was we just started talking about it.” Then she learned about an undergraduate research program that ultimately earned her a scholarship and the privilege of working with Tsolova in her lab beginning in spring of last year.
“I feel like I’m just a little person who played a role in a very big project,” she said. “But I do realize that somebody had to be the person on the forefront for the sake of the research, which could change the world for the better. So if I have to be that person, I’m happy to be that person.”
She also takes pride in playing a part in helping to evolve the food supply through innovative research.
Tsolova said Hall deserves credit for enhancing the efforts of her own muscadine grape research that ultimately will bring economic benefits to Florida.
