Biochemistry Faculty receive PRF grants

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

Congratulations to:

  • Dale Dorsett, “Transcriptional control of active genes by the PRC1 Polycomb repressor complex”
  • Susana Gonzalo, “Testing a new modality of treatment for triple-negative breast cancer”

The President’s Research Fund is in its fourth 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 April and October. For more information, see the Research Planning Committee website.
