Angel Baldan and Tomasz Heyduk receive PRF grants

The results of the eighth round of the President’s Research Fund were announced recently. Two Biochemistry faculty were among the recipients of these awards.

Congratulations to:

  • Angel Baldan, Ph.D.: “A new pathway linking cholesterol and glucose metabolism”
  • Tomasz Heyduk, Ph.D.: “Next generation sequencing as a readout in bioanalytical assays”

The President’s Research Fund is starting its fifth year of funding projects that have a strong potential for obtaining external funding for SLU investigators. The funds are used to collect preliminary data for a new or related project, and also support cross-disciplinary projects to maximize collaborations across departments and schools at SLU. Applications are accepted twice a year, in May and October. For more information, see the Research Planning Committee website.
