Young scientist at Virginia Commonwealth University wins Avanti prize
Date:4/7/2011

d an answer to the long-sought-after function of ceramide in apoptosis. His seminal discovery that ceramide-1-phosphate is a direct allosteric regulator of cPLA2 has uncovered a novel function of this sphingolipid metabolite in regulating eicosanoid biosynthesis. These discoveries already have established him as a rising star in lipid research," said VCU colleague Sarah Spiegel, who nominated Chalfant for the award.

Chalfant completed his bachelor's degree in 1992 at the University of Tampa and his doctoral degree in 1997 at the University of South Florida College of Medicine. He also served as a research associate at Duke University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Medical University of South Carolina.

The Avanti Young Investigator Award in Lipid Research consists of a plaque, $2,000 and travel expenses to present a lecture at the ASBMB annual meeting in April in Washington, D.C.
