Douglas Chalker, professor of biology in Arts & Sciences, received a five-year $660,281 collaborative award from the National Institutes of Health to expand hands-on science efforts in K-12 classrooms.
Research from the lab of Barani Raman finds in locusts that the presence of smell can be determined by simply adding and subtracting the presence of certain neurons.
Work from the lab of Rohit Pappu at the McKelvey School of Engineering and colleagues at St. Jude continues to reveal novel findings about phase separation, the process cells use for organization.
Scientists at Washington University in St. Louis described for the first time the structure of a bifunctional protein, called CcsBA, that transports heme and attaches it to cytochromes. The study led by Robert Kranz, professor of biology in Arts & Sciences, captured two conformational states of CcsBA, a bacterial and chloroplast protein, allowing researchers to characterize the enzyme mechanism.
A collaboration between Washington University in St. Louis, Université de Montréal and McGill University discovers a new importance of biomolecular condensates.
Richard Vierstra, the George and Charmaine Mallinckrodt Professor of Biology in Arts & Sciences, received a $62,707 supplemental grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in support of his phytochrome research.
Petra Levin, professor of biology in Arts & Sciences, received an $84,616 equipment supplement from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to purchase a new chromatography system.
Irene Antony, a neuroscience major in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis, won the Trainee Professional Development Award from the Society for Neuroscience.
Trail cameras have captured 567 pictures of local turkeys as part of the St. Louis Wildlife Project, an effort led by scientists at Tyson Research Center and the University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis.
The lab of Fuzhong Zhang at the McKelvey School of Engineering has used synthetic biology to bring together the best of spider silk and mussel foot protein in a biocompatible adhesive.
