Emma Morrison receives Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows Award

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Emma MorrisonEmma Morrison, a postdoctoral fellow in the Musselman laboratory, received an Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows Award for her project entitled “Multivalent readout of histone PTMs in chromatin regulation by BPTF: a structural and dynamic perspective,” which aims to investigate the combinatorial readout of multiple histone post-translational modifications by the linked PHD finger and bromodomain module of BPTF. Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Awards support postdoctoral scholars who have the highest potential for success in an independent academic career in chemistry and the life sciences, and are intended to assist in their transition from “mentored yet independent” postdoctoral to an independent, tenure-track position. Congratulations, Emma!
