4 Johns Hopkins researchers named AAAS Fellows
Date:11/25/2013

ich the addition of small chemical groups affects the functioning of proteins. His work has broad implications for everything from cellular signaling to gene regulation to metabolism.

Valina Dawson, Ph.D., is a professor in the Department of Neurology and director of the Neuroregeneration Program in the Institute for Cell Engineering. She was elected for discoveries regarding nerve cell death and survival, especially what her team learned about molecular chain reactions that govern both. These reactions involve the signaling molecules nitric oxide, poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase and other proteins that contribute to Parkinson's disease. Her work is helping us to understand why nerve cells die due to disease or trauma and what we can do to boost the body's ability to replace them.

Stephen Murray, Ph.D., is a Research Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, where he teaches and carries out research in high-energy astrophysics and X-ray astronomy. He was elected for innovative contributions to high-resolution X-ray imaging spectroscopy, and for founding the NASA Astrophysics Data System that has transformed the way we access information. The data system, used by virtually all astronomers and astrophysicists worldwide, has provided free access to the published literature in their field. As the lead researcher in charge of developing X-ray technologies for several of NASA's space mission projects, Murray helped develop X-ray imaging detectors that were successfully flown on several space missions. He is currently working to design tools for studying the small bodies of the outer solar system.
