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 received over $19.2 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2018. According to the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research (BRIMR), this ranks us fourth among all Biochemistry departments and the 2nd highest among public institutions.
The UNC School of Medicine selected professors from the departments of medicine and biochemistry & biophysics for the annual award in honor of the late Oliver Smithies, UNC’s first Nobel Prize winner.
Brian Kuhlman, Ph.D., is the dynamic co-developer of the popular molecular modeling software Rosetta. His laboratory in the Biochemistry and Biophysics Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is creating new methods in Rosetta for designing proteins with novel shapes and functions.
The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology issued 12 awards to top scientists, including Brian Kuhlman, PhD, professor of biochemistry and biophysics.
The UNC School of Medicine labs of Brian Kuhlman, PhD, and Aravinda de Silva, PhD, found that key components of a potentially potent vaccine fall apart due to body temperature, leaving us susceptible to severe infection.
The winner of the 2017 Journal of Cell Science (JCS) Pr … Continued
UNC researchers help piece together how the key players in DNA methylation work together during gene regulation, a key finding needed to develop better therapies.
