Hatfield to speak about doctoral experience

MINOT, N.D. – Minot State University’s Alumni Association and the Division of Science are proud to announce Breanne Hatfield will give a talk about her doctoral experience as a part of the Alumni Speaker Series on Monday, Oct. 16.

The talk will be at Swain Hall Third Floor Atrium starting at 5 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

“We are thrilled to have Bre back on campus,” said Courtenay Brekhus, MSU director of alumni engagement. “She was an exceptional student-athlete during her time at Minot State, but she's an even better person. Her positivity and bright personality will surely engage and inspire our current students.”

Hatfield recently defended her dissertation to the chemistry department at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Her seminar will highlight her graduate dissertation work on characterizing RNA-protein interactions and defining proximity-mediated function of RNA regulatory proteins.

“Our faculty are always proud to watch the achievements of our graduates as they continue in their careers after here,” said Bryan Schmidt, chair, Minot State Division of Science. “Being able to have a student return to report on their successful graduate career is particularly rewarding.”

Along with her experience in North Carolina, Hatfield will discuss her time at MSU. She was a triple major in biology, chemistry, and math at Minot State, the undergrad speaker at graduation in 2017, and a member of the MSU women’s soccer team.
