Asparagine synthetasedeficiency (ASD) keeps brain cells from developing and growing normally. It causes children to have small heads and brains, and epilepsy-like seizures. Now Biochemistry and Molecular Biology researchers are using patient cells to learn more about ASD.
The UF COM Celebration of Research is a wonderful opportunity for us to reflect on the strength of our research programs and appreciate the breadth, quality, and merit of the science conducted within the College.
Dr. Michael Kilberg, Dr. Robert McKenna and graduate students, Carrie Lomelino and Jacob Andring, co-authored a review article titled, “Asparagine synthetase: Function, structure, and role in disease.”
Tianqi (Jimmy) Wei, from Dr. Mingyi Xie’s lab, and Matthew Johnson, from Dr. Jörg Bungert’s lab, were selected for The Center for Undergraduate Research’s Emerging Scholars Program.
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology would like to congratulate and commemorate our Fall 2017 graduating masters and doctoral students on their excellent achievement!
