UC Berkeley virologist named Keck Distinguished Young Scholar
Date:7/30/2008

he cell's normal machinery to regulate RNA stability. Some RNA molecules are long-lived, and some are turned over very quickly, depending on their function. The cell has finely-tuned mechanisms to maintain or destroy RNA molecules, Glaunsinger said, but these mechanisms are largely not understood. By learning which pieces of the machinery the virus adopts for its own uses, Glaunsinger hopes to uncover the workings of the cellular machinery itself.

Glaunsinger received her Ph.D. in molecular virology and microbiology from Baylor College of Medicine in 2001. She joined the UC Berkeley faculty in 2006. In 2007, she received the Burroughs Wellcome Investigators in Pathogenesis of Infectious Disease Award, another prestigious award for young scientists.

The four other recipients of the Keck award are Dr. Carl Novina, assistant professor in cancer immunology and AIDS in the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Mass.; Coleen Murphy, assistant professor of molecular biology at Princeton University; Joanna Wysocka, assistant professor of chemical and systems biology and developmental biology at Stanford University; and Peter Reddien, member of the Whitehead Institute in Cambridge, Mass.

The Keck Distinguished Young Scholars in Medical Research program was established in 1998. Since then, it has awarded 49 grants to research universities and institutions. UC Berkeley last received one of these grants in 2005, to support the work of Lu Chen, assistant professor of neurobiology. "Now in its tenth year, our Young Scholars program helps to promote the early career development of some of the country's most promising biomedical scientists," said Day.
