Congrats to Eli McDonald- 2024 Karpay Award Winner!

Congratulations to Eli on winning the 2024 Karpay Award in Structural Biology! He has worked in the Jens Meiler and Lars Plate labs for four and a half years studying Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator (CFTR) using both computational structural biology and experimental chemical biology approaches in the Meiler lab and Plate lab respective. Through his research, Eli is developing methods for modeling CFTR mutations with Cystic Fibrosis drugs to determine the structural contributions of mutations specific drug response, as well as developing a quantitative proteomics platform for measuring CFTR interacting partners in cells. Eli will receive his award and present CFTR Folding – Started from the Translocon Now We are Here on Tuesday, January 23, 2024, as part of the MBTP/CSB Seminar Series. The seminar begins at 12:20pm in 1220 MRB3 with the award presentation to follow.
