American Society for Microbiology honors Hung Ton-That
Date:9/14/2007

Washington, DC September 13, 2007 One of the 2007 American Society for Microbiology (ASM) ICAAC Young Investigator Awards sponsored by ASM will be presented to Hung Ton-That, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Molecular, Microbial, and Structural Biology, University of Connecticut Health Center. Dr. Ton-That is being honored for his research excellence in microbiology and infectious disease.

Dr. Ton-Thats research is highly regarded, and has been published extensively in a multitude of journals. He has made major contributions to the study of cell wall sorting structure, and he has developed an exciting and productive research program to explore the role of gram-positive bacteria surface structures, their biochemical assembly and role in pathogenesis. During his postdoctoral training at the University of Chicago, Ton-That studied the assembly of fimbriae on the surface of Corynebacterium diphtheriae. An NIH RO1 grant has enabled him to continue this work as an independent researcher.

Dr. Ton-That received his B.S. degree in Chemistry from UCLA, and his Ph.D. from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the UCLA School of Medicine.
