BMB Faculty Anthony Leung named Top 10 Finalist in ASCB–Gibco Emerging Leader prize

anthonyBMB faculty Anthony Leung was named a finalist for the 2016 American Society of Cell Biology(ASCB)–Gibco Emerging Leader prize. The prize recognizes emerging leaders in science. Dr. Leung was commended for his research on non-membranous RNA granules and microRNAs. Since establishing his lab, he has developed novel proteomics approaches to identify the sites of ADP-ribosylation —a post-translational modification involved in the regulation of stress granules and microRNA activity.

Dr. Leung attended the Award ceremony this December at the 2016 The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) Meeting and the ASCB–Gibco Emerging Leader Prize reception, honoring the top 10 young scientists.
