Group member Conner Herndon was awarded first place for his presentation at the Society of Physics Students Zone 6 Meeting at the University of Puerto Rico on March 15. His presentation was titled “Computational Determination of Small Molecule Permeability”. Congrats Conner!
Curtis has received a GAANN fellowship for 2013-2014 as part of the Molecular Biophysics Training Program. Congratulations!
JC just returned from two back-to-back meetings in Snowmass, CO. He presented work on small-helix partitioning in membranes at the first meeting on Free Energy Methods and structures of BamA and a new complex between SecY and a nascent chain at the second meeting on Membrane Proteins. Not all the time was spent in front of a screen though, as the picture to the right clearly shows!
I’ve converted from a static format to the more dynamic wordpress. Hopefully this will also lead to me posting many new and interesting things here!
