Rou-Jia Sung receives AAUW research publication grant
The American Association of University Women has awarded the Carleton assistant professor of biology a grant for the 2022-23 award year.
Rou-Jia Sung, assistant professor of biology, is the recipient of an American Association of University Women Research Publication Grant in Engineering, Medicine and Science. During the 2022-23 award year, Sung’s project, titled “Insights into ly6 protein function: identifying novel interacting partners of odr-2,” will identify and study new regulators of cell signaling. Not only will this work represent a significant contribution to our understanding of ly6 function in C. elegans, but insights drawn from this model system will be applicable towards more complex systems across species.
