The results of the sixth round of the President’s Research Fund were announced recently. Several Biochemistry faculty were among the recipients of these awards.
- Joel Eissenberg, “Defining targets of RNA Polymerase II elongation complexes in development”
- Jung Huang, “Mechanism by which CRSBP-1 ligands unbutton lymphatic intercellular junctions”
- Sergey Korolev, “Structure-functional studies of recombination mediator proteins”
- Frances Yap, “Mechanistic basis for antibiotic-induced resistance”
The President’s Research Fund is in its third 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 generally accepted twice a year, in May and October. For more information, see the Internal Awards website.
