Klauda Earns NSF Career Award


Chemical and biomolecular engineering assistant professor Jeffery Klauda has received a National Science Foundation Early Faculty Career Development (NSF Career) Award for his proposal "Secondary Active Membrane Transporters: Determining Protein Structure and Transport Mechanism with a New Hybrid Simulation."

The research will investigate how secondary active transporters (SATs) interact with cell membranes and will make use of a new simulation method called implicit-explicit membrane simulation. The work may lead to a better understanding of protein transport in the cell membranes of mammals, plants and single-celled organisms.

As part of the grant, Klauda will develop instructional aids for high school students to promote interest in molecular biology.
