Biochemistry Faculty receive PRF grants

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.

Congratulations to:

  • 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.
