In 2016, the National Institutes of Health increased support for projects in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement Taylor Eighmy attributes this, in part, to the creation of a number of new resources and development opportunities through the Office of Research and Engagement which specifically support NIH researchers and assist them in the submission of strong proposals.
- Michael Best, associate professor, “Labeling of Lipid Products Using Synthetic Tagged Metabolite Probes to Analyze Lipid Biosynthesis and Trafficking.“
- Tessa Calhoun, assistant professor, “Imaging Amphotericin B’s Mechanism of Action with Transient Absorption Microscopy.”
- David Jenkins, associate professor, “Catalytic C2+N1 Aziridination from Organic and Carbamate Azides.”
“We are thrilled to see so many new NIH awards in the Department of Chemistry,” said Eighmy. “These calculated efforts are beginning to have a noticeable impact on our researchers’ success with NIH, and we hope this trend continues.”
