Congratulations to Dr. Saskia Neher, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics who is the eleventh Pew Scholar recipient for UNC since the program began in 1985. She is one of 8 women among 22 awardees overall nationwide.
Dr. Shobhan Gaddameedhi, postdoctoral fellow in Aziz Sancar's lab, is one of six recipients of a NC TraCS $2K Pilot Program.
Congratulations to Lynn Ray who was selected as the 2012 Manager of the Year by the University Managers Association.
Congratulations to Lucia Stefanini, Research Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics, who is only the second recipient of an EHA-ISTH Joint Fellowship.
Congratulations to Dr. Stephen Chaney, Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics, who received the Academy of Educator's highest honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award for Medical Teaching.
Cook lab researchers publish a paper in Nature Cell Biology. The finding presents a possible explanation for why so many cancers possess not just genomic instability, but also more or less than the usual 46 DNA-containing chromosomes.
Congratulations to Dr. Daniel Isom, Research Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics, who is the recipient of the University Research Council's 2012 James Moeser Award for Distinguished Research.
Congratulations to Dr. Lucia Stefanini, Research Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics, who is a recipient of a University Research Council research grant award
Congratulations to Dr. Jean Cook, Associate Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics, who was recently elected as a Fellow to the 2012 UNC Academy of Educators in recognition of her outstanding teaching efforts at UNC-Chapel Hill.
Congratulations to Dr. Mary Napier, Research Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics, who is a recipient of a 2012 C. Knox Massey Distinguished Service Award.
Dokholyan lab researchers publish a paper in the April 16, 2012 issue of Nature Methods demonstrating the structure and function of RNA molecules and paving the way to develop targets for new therapeutics.
Congratulations to Dr. Shobhan Gaddameedhi, postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Aziz Sancar, who received the third place award at the Postdoctoral Research Poster Forum of the 2nd annual Oliver Smithies Nobel Symposium.
Jonathan Edwards and Elizabeth Pollom have both been awarded the 2012 Diane Harris Leadership Award for their exemplary public service as doctoral students in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics.
Do you need peptides synthesized? Peptide antigens for antibody production? Or even specialized peptide libraries? -- The UNC High Throughput Peptide Synthesis and Array Facility can help!
Congratulations to Dr. Parise who will become an Associate Editor of Blood, a peer-reviewed journal published by the American Society of Hematology, effective January 2013 for a four-year term.
Congratulations to Dr. Rinku Majumder, Research Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics, who receives a UNC Junior Faculty Research Award.
The V Foundation for Cancer Research announced this week that Greg Wang, PhD, has been awarded the Martin D. Abeloff, MD, V Scholar Award. This award goes to the research project that receives the highest rating from the V Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Board. Wang is the 10th V Scholar from UNC Lineberger.
Dokholyan lab has a cover story in the December 7, 2011 issue of Structure. Dagliyan et al. present a rapid molecular dynamics-based approach to reveal the mechanism of protein-peptide recognition. The authors find that the peptide, rather than the protein, undergoes an induced fit, and that electrostatic interactions guide the peptide toward the binding region.
Congratulations to Dr. Julia Brittain, Research Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics, who was recently selected to the Editorial Board for the publication World Journal of Hematology.
