y to map the three-dimensional structure of the human genome as a means of identifying the molecular basis for many diseases, including various cancers.

  • Melanie D. Ohi, Ph.D., Vanderbilt University Medical Center assistant professor of cell and developmental biology, who will take a multidisciplinary approach toward understanding the structure and function of large molecular complexes called spliceosomes.

  • Karin S. Pfennig, Ph.D., University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, assistant professor of biology, who will use an experimental approach to understand how an individual's health status and external environment influence his or her behavior.

  • Miguel Ramalho-Santos, Ph.D., University of California, San Francisco, assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences and researcher in the Institute for Regeneration Medicine, who will study the control and function of stem cell pluripotency, which has implications for regenerative medicine and cancer biology.

  • Samara Reck-Peterson, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School assistant professor of cell biology, who will couple genetics with biophysics to discover biomedically important molecules that control how molecular motors deliver diverse cargo to the right place at the right time within cells.

  • Erik M. Shapiro, Ph.D., Yale University School of Medicine assistant professor of diagnostic radiology and biomedical engineering, who will use cellular and functional magnetic resonance imaging to aid in the development of novel strategies for manipulating stem and progenitor cell migration in the brain, particularly in response to injury and disease.

  • William M. Shih, Ph.D., Dana-Farber Cancer Institute assistant professor of biological chemistry and molecular pharmacology, who will develop tools for atomic-resolution imaging of membrane proteins to enable structure-based drug design.

  • Amy J. Wagers, Ph.D., Joslin Diabetes Center
