Decoding properties hidden within a protein’s 3D structure can be tricky. Scientists in the Sussman Lab identified a molecule that could unlock secrets held within proteins’ folds.
The award recognizes her work, which explores spatial analysis of the proteome and research approaches to identifying protein function.
Natalia Betancourt Rodriguez, a senior double majoring in biochemistry and global health, spent the summer interning in a lab in Medellín, Colombia.
Hoskins, whose research focuses on the eukaryotic spliceosome, was elected to serve a two year term spanning 2024-2025.
Monica Neugebauer, who joins the faculty in September 2023, will focus on the discovery and evolution of enzymes to unlock their catalytic capabilities for use in biochemical reactions.
Diversity is the key to survival for beneficial bacteria living in your gut. Now, scientists have new tools to explore this diversity.
Palmer will study interactions within the community of microbes living around the roots of corn plants and how these interactions impact the nitrogen available to the plant.
Snehal Chaudhari, who joined the faculty in August 2023, will investigate relationships between the gut microbiome and metabolic diseases.
The award recognizes Simcox for her outstanding research contributions in the area of lipids.
Much remains unknown about cholesterol. New research reveals how these lipid molecules move in cell membranes, which could have broad implications for future studies.
