Drs. Maria Spies and Ashley Spies receive a seed grant award


Drs. Maria Spies and Ashley Spies received a seed grant award from the Center for Biocatalysis and Bioprocessing (CBB) for project entitled “Targeting RAD51 DNA repair protein for cancer therapy: development of a combined experimental/computational workflow.” The researchers are looking to initiate a drug-discovery campaign targeting human RAD51 recombinase, an important part in homology-directed DNA repair. This grant will allow them to carry out a fragment screen to identify RAD51 binders by SPR and to characterize the effect of the hits on the biochemical activities of RAD51.


Congratulations Ashley & Maria!!!
