Pitt chosen to participate in Beckman Scholars Program

The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation has selected Pitt for its Beckman Scholars Program, which supports undergraduate research in biochemistry, chemistry, and biological and medical sciences.

Pitt's first two Beckman Scholars, both molecular biology majors, were chosen earlier this month: junior Robert J. Lee and senior William H. McCoy IV. Lee will work with Jeffrey Brodsky of biological sciences on "The Role of the Proteasome in the Export of Proteins During ER-Associated Protein Degradation." McCoy will work in Linda Jen-Jacobson's biological sciences lab on "An Energetic Analysis of the Reduced Specificity Exhibited by the E192K Mutant of EcoRI Restriction Endonuclease."
