re often dysregulated in cancer. These studies may accelerate the development of microRNA-based therapeutics.

  • Coleen Murphy, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University Dr. Murphy plans to identify the genes critical for the maintenance of higher neuronal activities, in particular learning and memory, during aging. Her work may eventually lead to the development of treatments and preventions for age-related memory decline and neurodegeneration.

  • Joanna Wysocka, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Departments of Chemical and Systems Biology and Developmental Biology, Stanford University Dr. Wysocka aims to understand how certain chemical modifications of chromatin, the complex of DNA and proteins that makes up chromosomes, play a role in regulating cell fate determination. Her ultimate goals are to expand current understanding of the epigenetic components of disease and improve the therapeutic potential of stem cells.

  • Britt Glaunsinger, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, University of California, Berkeley Dr. Glaunsinger's research is directed toward understanding how the human herpesviruses interface with cellular RNA processing and degradation machinery to enhance their own replication. This work will elucidate novel cellular pathways targeted by cancer-causing viruses, leading to potentially new therapeutics.

  • Peter Reddien, Ph.D., Member, Whitehead Institute and Assistant Professor, MIT Dr. Reddien is working to identify the genetic mechanisms of regeneration in flat worms, leading to information about the regulation and function of stem cells in cell replacement and tissue repair.

    The Foundation is also pleased to recognize the achievements of its 2008 W.M.Keck Research Excellence Awardees:

    • Daniela Nicastro, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Biology, Brandeis University
    • Sarkis Mazmanian, Ph.D., Assist
