Rebecca awarded CLP predoctoral fellowship!

Congratulations to Rebecca Rasmussen, a PhD student in the Interdisciplinary Biological Sciences Graduate Program who is co-advised by Julius B. Lucks and Thomas V. O’Halloran, on winning a CLP predoctoral fellowship!

The Chemistry of Life Processes Predoctoral Training Program, a Chemistry:Biology Interface Program of the National Institute for General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), integrates biology and chemistry through a common set of course requirements, a hands-on team based approach to laboratory training, a unique preceptor arrangement, and a strong communal training environment.

The training program educates the next generation of transdisciplinary scientists that will be capable of extending and integrating the perspectives and approaches of the life sciences and chemistry to complex scientific problems in the field of biomedical research.

Through this fellowship, Rebecca will synthesize the knowledge of RNA biology and RNA structural techniques from the Lucks lab with the knowledge of metalloregulatory chemistry and biology from the O’Halloran lab to study E. coli zinc regulation mechanisms.

Congrats Rebecca!
