Karina Kruth wins the Subramanian Thesis Award

Karina Kruth, who completed her PhD with Dr. Peter Rubenstein, has been named the 2014 Subramanian Award for best PhD thesis in the Department of Biochemistry. Karina is a postdoctoral scholar in Dr. Miles Pufall’s laboratory at the University of Iowa, Department of Biochemistry. Her postdoctoral work will focus on the glucocorticoid receptor structure and resistance to glucocorticoid treatment in Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

Karina is the 21st 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. Kruth.
