Biochemistry: Student Honors, Awards, Publications, and Other Activities

Prerna Kaur (Biochemistry) coauthored “Genetically Modified Collagen-like Triple Helix Peptide,” which is included as a chapter in Hybrid Nanomaterials: Synthesis, Characterization, and Applications (John Wiley & Sons, 2011).

Cho Tan (Biochemistry), who is studying with Peter N. Lipke (Prof., Brooklyn, Biochemistry, Biology), coauthored two scientific articles titled “Yeast Cell Adhesion Molecules Have Functional Amyloid-Forming Sequences” and “Structure and Function of Glycosylated Tandem Repeats from Candida Albicans Als Adhesins” (Eukaryotic Cell, March 2010). He also had a photo published on the cover of Trends in Microbiology (February 2012). The image shows baker’s yeast, also known as saccharomyces cerevisiae, aggregated with a biofilm-forming adhesion—Flo 11p/Muclp—and illustrates the important role of protein amyloids in cell adhesion.
