Congratulations to Jean Cook, Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics, who was selected as a recipient of a 2010 Basic Science Preceptor Excellence in Teaching Award by the Academy of Educators at UNC-CH School of Medicine.
New research in the lab of Dr. Yue Xiong, Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics, suggest that the addition or removal of a certain type of chemical tag - called an acetyl group - onto metabolic enzymes plays a key role in how cellular metabolism is regulated.
Congratulations to researchers in the lab of Dr. Patricia Maness, Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics, whose article "ALCAM Regulates Mediolateral Retinotopic Mapping in the Superior Colliculus" was featured on the cover of the December 16, 2009 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience.
Congratulations to Dr. Jeanette Cook, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics, who received the 2010 Jefferson-Pilot Fellowship in Academic Medicine.
Congratulations to Dr. Jack Griffith, Distinguished Professor or Microbiology & Immunology and Biochemistry & Biophysics whose work was highlighted in a special NOVA scienceNOW video series (originally aired in July 2009).
Congratulations to Andrew Hemmert, doctoral student of Biochemistry & Biophysics whose research was recognized by the Graduate Education Advancement Board (GEAB) at UNC-CH.

Congratulations to Dr. Aziz Sancar, Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics whose work was reprinted as a classic to commemorate the centennial of the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
Ras is a family of genes encoding small GTPases involved in cellular signal transduction. If their signals are dysregulated, Ras proteins can cause cancer. Dr. Sharon Campbell explains her lab’s research into a novel mechanism for regulation of Ras proteins by reactive free radical species.
Thursday, October 15, 2009 — Dr. Xian Chen, Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics, who along with Dr. Morgan Giddings, Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology have been awarded a $1.6 million 2-year “Grand Opportunities” (GO) grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute.
Congratulations to Tae-Hong Kang, postdoctoral fellow in Aziz Sancar's lab in the Dept. of Biochemistry & Biophysics, who received a UNC Postdoctoral Award for Research Excellence for the 2009-2010 academic year.
Dr. Arrel Toews, Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics receives the honor of giving this year's Richard H. Whitehead Lecture.
