2015 Biophysical Society Fellow and Distinguished Faculty at WUSM

Tim LohmanCongratulations to Timothy Lohman. Dr. Lohman is being honored for his pioneering biophysical studies of the mechanisms and energetics of protein-DNA interactions, including the enzymology and kinetic mechanisms of DNA helicases and translocases, and single stranded DNA binding proteins. The awards ceremony was held at the Biophysical Society’s 59th Annual Meeting in February 2015.
