John Pryor wins the Subramanian Thesis Award

John Pryor, who completed his PhD with Dr. M. Todd Washington, has been named the 2013 Subramanian Award for best PhD thesis in the Department of Biochemistry. John recently began a postdoctoral position in Dale Ramsden’s laboratory as a Lineberger Cancer Center Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of North Carolina this January. His postdoctoral work will focus on the mechanism of DNA double-strand break repair by the non-homologous end-joining pathway.

John is the 20th winner of the Subramanian Award, which is made possible by a gift from Dr. Alap Subramanian, a 1964 PhD from the department, who parlayed his training with the late George Kalnitsky, (and with Irving Klotz at Northwestern and both Bernard Davis and Herman Kalckar at Harvard Medical School), into a highly successful career at the Max-Planck-Institut. Our deepest thanks to Dr. Subramanian and our heartiest congratulations to Dr. Pryor.
