Natarajan Kannan, an assistant professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Georgia, has received a $969,822 National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award.  With it over the next five years he will focus on gaining an in-depth understanding of the evolution of kinases, a protein that controls cell signaling pathways.  Since ineffective communication between cells can trigger disease and sometimes death, Kannan hopes that the results of his studies will lead to new approaches for treating a variety of diseases.

The NSF CAREER Award program offers the organization’s most prestigious award to help young faculty members develop projects that effectively integrate research and education within their university.  Read more about Kannan here>
