The purpose of this prize is to recognize a graduating senior(s) for his or her outstanding research as an undergraduate major in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. The award consists of a certificate and a cash prize funded through the generosity of Dr. Sangram S.

Several years ago our esteemed colleague Professor Dan DerVartanian retired from our faculty but has remained active as Professor Emeritus. It is his donation, with matching funds from the department, that has made two awards possible this year.

Congratulations to all of our Spring 2022 Biochemistry and Molecular Biology graduates! Pictured here are Dr. Mike Adams, Undergraduate Coordinator, and Kathy Bolt, Undergraduate BMB Advisor, at the graduation event.

On Friday, April 22, Javid Aceil and Anjali Shenoy gave the final Eriksson Lecture of the semester and were awarded the Eriksson Scholarship. Congratulations, Javid and Anjali!

Gerald Hart, a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar in drug discovery at the University of Georgia, has been elected a 2022 fellow of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Congratulations, Dr. Hart!
