Congratulations to Danielle Chappell, graduate student in Blossom Damania’s lab, who has won a BWFund Graduate Diversity Enrichment Award!
The award was based on her research on: “Characterizing the impact of a cellular deubiquitinase on the lifecycle of Kaposi’s Sarcoma-associated Herpesvirus.”
The BWFund Graduate Diversity Enrichment Program (GDEP) provides $5,000 over two years to provide underrepresented minority PhD students (enrolled in NC Institutions of Higher Education) with opportunities for greater science and research enrichment experiences. Up to ten awards will be granted for the 2021-2023 period. ~From the BWFund GDEP Award website
