The maximum award amount is $5,000 and eligible faculty applicants are tenure or tenure-track, hold research or clinical appointments, adjunct, lecturers, or instructors. Dr. Daniel Isom is a Research Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics who was awarded a URC Research grant to support his research project on G proteins. URC research grants are often considered a stepping stone to extramural support and Dr. Isom may use his award amount for costs such as collecting pilot data, research-related travel, and research equipment or supplies. In addition, Dr. Isom received a supplement of $5,000 with the URC James Moeser Award for Distinguished Research which makes his total award amount $10,000 for this project.
Dr. Isom is a member of the and his research is focused on how protein dynamics are regulated by cellular stress. To learn more about his work, please contact him at: email@example.com.
