A Celebration of Prof Alice B. Fulton’s Career

Biochemistry will be hosting a retirement party on June 12 to celebrate the career of Professor Alice Fulton, who will be transitioning to Emeritus status at the end of the academic year.  A PhD from Brown University, Alice performed post-doctoral research with Chandler Fulton at Brandeis University and Sheldon Penman at Massachusetts Institute of Technology before coming to Iowa as an assistant professor in 1981.

As a member of the Iowa faculty, she was a recipient of a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator Award, an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the author of a solid body of work on the cytoskeletal matrix, muscle development and mRNA localization. She also served as mentor of highly successful trainees, including William Isaacs, now Professor of Urology and Oncology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and Susan Wente, now Professor and Chair of Cell & Developmental Biology and Senior Associate Dean for Biomedical Sciences at Vanderbilt University.
