Consider this note an open invitation. It’s your invitation to take a closer look at Southern Miss over the next few months, whether you are a prospective student or family member, current student, faculty or staff member, alum or fan.

If you were to ask a classroom of first grade students what career path they plan to choose, you will likely receive answers such as “fireman” or “astronaut,” probably based on the excitement of riding on a fire truck or a spaceship, or “teacher,” based on the example set each day by their own teacher.

However, as these students grow and mature, discover and develop their own talent and aptitude, and consider many other factors, including job availability and salary, these career aspirations often change.

Southern Miss Vice Provost for Research Dr. Gordon Cannon notes that the state's universities work in collaboration more often than the average citizen realizes.

Daniel Murin is using the research skills he honed in the biochemistry laboratories at The University of Southern Mississippi in the fight against one of the world’s most feared diseases.

 

Murin, a doctoral student at the renowned Scripps Research Institute in San Diego, is on a team of scientists that contributed to the development of a treatment for the Ebola virus known as ZMapp. The antibody cocktail, which showed promise in animal models, was recently used to treat two patients who contracted the disease in Africa.
