2015 Sigma Fellowship Awarded

Fazio_N announce

Congratulations to Nicole Fazio for being selected for the 2015 Sigma Fellowship in memory of Dr. Gerty Cori. Nicole is a graduate student in the Computational and Molecular Biophysics program. She is doing her PhD thesis work in the lab of Dr. Timothy Lohman. The Sigma award provides funds for educational expenses.

Sigma Chemical Company created the fellowship in 1958 as a gift to the Department of Biological Chemistry (now Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics) in memory of Dr. Gerty Cori. Dr. Cori and her husband, Dr. Carl Cori, performed research in the Department of Biological Chemistry. They won a Nobel Prize in 1947 for their discoveries of how glycogen is broken down and re-synthesized within the body. More.
