Congratulations to Justin Rectenwald a graduate student in Biochemistry and Biophysics, who was awarded the Diane Harris Leadership Award for exemplary public service.
Accessing news and information about the School of Medicine just got easier. The SOM Intranet will become the hub for internal resources that support our faculty and staff.
The lab of William Marzluff, PhD, UNC Kenan Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry & Biophysics will collaborate with Cell Microsystems on gene editing projects to speed up the use of CRISPR workflows in lab experiments.
In a study in Nature Communications, Pengda Liu, PhD, assistant professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics and Shelton Earp, MD, director of UNC Lineberger and the Lineberger Professor of Cancer Research, and their collaborators reported discoveries about a key signaling pathway that can be hyperactive in kidney cancer.
The Oliver Smithies Investigators Program recognizes senior School of Medicine research faculty who have made major contributions within and beyond their disciplines. This year’s lecture honoring the 2018-19 Oliver Smithies Investigators Dr. Joseph Eron and Dr. Brian Kuhlman will be held on April 15, 2019 from 3pm-4pm in 1131 Bioinformatics, and will be followed by a Reception.
We appreciate our graduate students for all thier hard work and accomplishments to teaching and research! Graduate students come and enjoy your week of events here at BCBP. We are glad to have you all here! (Most of our events are not limited just to graduate students and we’d love to share these activities with faculty, staff, and post-docs!)
Dr. Carter has been working to unravel some of the biggest mysteries of molecular evolution — that is, how exactly did life on Earth as we know it rise from the primordial, chemical-laden soup four billion years ago. In particular, he investigates how information flows from genes to proteins found in living organisms via genetic coding.
We are very saddened to let you know about the passing of former faculty member, Dr. Jan Hermans. Jan was a faculty member in the Biochemistry Department from 1963-2004 and was also a member of the Biophysics Program from the beginning. He is greatly missed.
Liu was one of 28 scientists who were awarded V Scholar Grants in 2018 by the V Foundation for Cancer Research. The two-year, $200,000 grants are designed to identify and advance innovative young scientists who are establishing their research careers.
UNC researchers including Leslie Parise, PhD and doctoral student Alex Chung have designed a novel way to attack an aggressive breast cancer. By working with a drug development company, they hope their laboratory discovery will translate to a new treatment combination in the clinic in the future.
