Dr. Charles Carter, Jr., Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics resurrect “molecular fossils” to conduct experiments that undercut the predominant scientific theory of how life began on Earth.
Congratulations to Greg Wang, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics, who was awarded a Jefferson Pilot Fellowship from UNC School of Medicine to further his research mission searching for better ways to shut down cancer cells.
The team from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill found that a single atom—a calcium, in fact—can control how bacteria walk.
Congratulations to Dr. Jeanette Cook, Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics who assumed her new administrative role on Sept. 15, 2013.
A new study in the Parise lab — the first to apply a new screening technique to human platelets — netted a potential drug target for preventing dangerous blood clots in high-risk people.
Researchers from the Dohlman lab have discovered that a well-known associate of G protein-coupled receptors -- a common target of FDA-approved drugs -- may play a critical role in mounting a rescue effort to avert an intracellular meltdown.
Researchers at UNC and NIH have defined the role of the protein vinculin in enabling cell movement in a paper published in the JCB,
Dr. Wolfgang Bergmeier is the recipient of the Investigator Recognition Award at the 16th Biennial Awards for Contributions to Haemostasis (BACH) from the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH).
Congratulations to Dr. Leslie Parise, Professor and Chair of Biochemistry & Biophysics, who has been elected as chair of the Federal Issues Subcommittee of Public Affairs Advisory Committee for ASBMB.
New research from the lab of Dr. Brian Strahl, associate professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics, has shown how a protein called UHRF1 “reads” the histone code in a specific way to perform an important cellular function.
Congratulations to Dr. Henrik Dohlman who will become an Associate Editor of Journal of Biological Chemistry, a peer-reviewed journal, effective July 2013 for a five-year term.
In the first application of this approach, the UNC researchers showed how a protein called Src kinase influences the way cells extend and move, a previously unknown role that is consistent with the protein’s ties to tumor progression and metastasis.
