Yuan Yang, a graduate student in Dr. Tatyana Igumenova’s laboratory, has been awarded a highly competitive 2-year Predoctoral Fellowship from the American Heart Association. The objective of her research is to understand how the activity of Protein Kinase Calpha, an enzyme involved in progression and development of cardiovascular disease, is regulated by the peptidyl-prolyl isomerase Pin1. Yuan has also delivered a talk on this subject at the 2014 Biophysical Society meeting in San Francisco.
Congratulations to Yuan!
