Biochemistry Faculty receive PRF grants

The results for Cycle 11 (Fall 2014) of the President’s Research Fund applications were announced recently. Two Biochemistry faculty were among the recipients of these awards.

Congratulations to:

  • Dale Dorsett, Ph.D., “Control of transcriptional enhancer function by mediator and cohesin”
  • David Ford, Ph.D., “Novel peptidoaldehyde mediators of inflammation derived from leukocyte myeloperoxidase activity”

The President’s Research Fund funds 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.
