Dr. Jun Li's research aims to identify additional new proteins and targets them with multiple small molecules to stop malaria transmission.
By exploiting a brain tumor’s own biology, researchers at FIU’s Biomolecular Sciences Institute (BSI) are hoping to destroy glioblastoma, a deadly brain cancer with no known cure.
Dr. Miguel A. Villalona-Calero, BSI affiliated faculty member, has been named a Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences (CURE) Lifetime Achievement Honoree.
Yaou Ren receives a 2017 Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society Student and New Investigator Travel Award.
Graduate student Shayna Sandhaus from Professor Yuk-Ching Tse-Dinh's lab was recognized for her outstanding academic achievement at this year’s CASE Student Award Ceremony.
At the 2017 Florida Annual Meeting and Exposition (FAME), BSI Researcher, Dr. Francisco Fernandez-Lima was one of the three Emerging Young Investigators of the American Chemical Society (ACS) that was highlighted for his early independent work, which is quickly gaining recognition in his field.
Worlds Ahead Biochemistry Ph.D. graduate Jill Beaver has been awarded an AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellowship at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
BSI faculty mentored students Alexander Bolufer and Anthony Castellanos from Dr Francisco Fernandez-Lima research group obtained the Second place for Poster presentations during the FAME 2017 meeting, held in Tarpon Springs, FL.
FIU physicists Prem Chapagain, Bernard Gerstman and recent Worlds Ahead Graduate Jeevan GC focus on the molecular biophysics of a new class of proteins known as “Transformer” proteins. While using the latest techniques in statistical physics and computational molecular dynamics to study this recently identified class of proteins, they realized that the deadly Ebola virus depends on a Transformer Protein to function.
