New NSF funding!

We’re thrilled to share the news that the Purse Lab has just been awarded another NSF grant! Our new award, titled “Next-Generation Fluorescent Nucleosides and Structure-Photophysics Relationships“, supports a research program from 2018–21 focused on creating and studying fluorescent modifications of DNA/RNA that we expect to be widely useful in biophysics. Purse Lab students Ben Turner, Dillon Burns, Katrina Ngo, and Susan Andersen deserve special recognition for contributing vital preliminary results that helped hugely in obtaining this funding. We can’t wait to share the results of our research with the broader community.
