BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Bismarck native has headed to the other side of the world to research bacteria.

Kimberly Kline is spending five years in Singapore to research new ways to fight bacteria that have developed a resistance to current antibiotics.

Kline is one of 11 foreign scientists chosen for the research opportunity, which includes securing millions in funding.

The research project is part of a government drive in Singapore to attract more talent.

Kline was a microbiology researcher at Washington University in St. Louis before heading to Singapore.

She tells the Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/yFhAi6) that she was apprehensive about the move at first but has grown to enjoy the new adventure. She and her husband previously spent several years living and working in Sweden.
