Professor Laura Finzi receives $1.5M NIH grant renewal

Professor Laura Finzi has been awarded a $1.5M renewal of her research grant from the National Institutes of Health, entitled “Supercoiling in genome topology and transcription.”  The NIH funding propels the Finzi Laboratory’s mission to understand the molecular mechanisms and physical laws that underlie transcriptional regulation. State-of-the-art single molecule detection techniques are used to determine protein-DNA structure and functional dynamics.
