Research Assistant Receives Predoctoral Fellowship Award From the AHA

Congratulations to Stephanie Lawry (Klein Lab) on her Predoctoral Fellowship Award from the American Heart Association of $52,000 over 2 years. For her project, "Group III Hybrid Histidine Kinases: A Novel Drug Target for the Treatment of Cardiac Fungal Infections," Ms. Lawry will study a protein called Drk1, a novel drug target for the treatment of systemic fungal infections. Using this information, she will also work to identify compounds that could be used as antifungal drugs to treat these infections.
