NIH Grant Enables Chemist To Unwrap DNA Mysteries
Dr. Sheena D’Arcy, assistant professor of chemistry in the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, recently received a Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award for Early Stage Investigators (ESI-MIRA) (grant number R35GM133751) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

D’Arcy’s research focuses on the structure and function of the proteins that are involved in gene transcription — the process of “reading” DNA instructions to create the proteins that carry out life functions.
