Matthew Rook Wins Poster Award at 2021 Biophysical Society Meeting
Thursday, February 25, 2021
Congratulations to Matthew Rook, PhD candidate (MacLean Lab), for winning a poster award at the 2021 Biophysical Society Meeting! Matt received this Student Research Achievement Award in the Channels, Receptors and Transporters category for his poster entitled “ASIC activation mechanisms delineated through genetic code expansion”. Matt’s work uses genetic code expansion techniques along with flow cytometry, patch clamp and UV-photocrosslinking to trap these channels in specific conformations in order to understand how these receptors journey from resting to active states.
