2010-2011 Ruegamer Fellows Announced

The William and Arlene Ruegamer Biochemistry Fellows for 2010-2011 are Natasha Pirman and Jeffrey Carter. Natasha received her BS in chemistry from Lee University in 2005 and is studying intrinsically disordered proteins using site-directed spin-labeling electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy. Jeffrey graduated from Virginia Tech in 2006 and is studying the physical and structural characteristics that allow GM2 activator protein to bind and extract its lipid substrate. Both students are working under the direction of Prof. Gail Fanucci.
