Propolis propensities

Self confessed Texan science nerd Camden Millar is just 14 years old, but she's already winning awards and has studied propolis (no not this one!):

Last year, she tested two kinds of bacteria's resistance to propolis. Miller said she found bacteria with a cell wall stopped growing when propolis was introduced, but the propolis couldn't penetrate bacteria with a cell membrane.
What is she studying next? She won't say, but it involves propolis.
