Our department gathered at the Carolina Club to celebrate the holidays on December 13, 2017.
The lab of Jean Cook, PhD, in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, found how a chain of proteins called an MCM complex could enable the fast cell-division that makes some forms of cancer so dangerous. The study first author Jacob Matson, a PhD candidate in the Cook lab performed most of the experiments.
Congratulations to Sharon Campbell who has been appointed the Gary F. Liebscher Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics, effective November 1.
