Weekly Wave - Dr. Jean McLain Promoted to Full Professor
The Water Resources Research Center is delighted to announce that Associate Director, Dr. Jean McLain, was promoted to full professor, with an additional appointment within UA Cooperative Extension at University of Arizona in May 2017. Her Faculty appointment is within the Soil, Water and Environmental Science Department of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences where she will be teaching one class each year. Her outstanding work as a microbiologist, establishing linkages between microbes in the natural environment and human health, and particularly her work in antibiotic resistance, has offered new insights into water reuse opportunities in Arizona and beyond. When asked about the promotion, she said "I am really excited to continue my research and mentoring at UA and would like to thank all those at SWES, CALS, and the WRRC who helped make this happen."
