Rebekah Gundry, PhD, assistant professor of biochemistry at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW), and a member of MCW’s Biotechnology and Bioengineering Center, received the 2013 Robert J. Cotter Young Investigator Award from the U.S. Human Proteome Organization (US HUPO).
The award was established in honor of the late Dr. Robert Cotter, a founding US HUPO board member, to recognize young scientists using proteomics (the study of protein structure and functions) to research human biology.
Dr. Gundry joined the MCW faculty in 2010 after completing postdoctoral work at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, the National Institutes of Health, and ETH (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule) in Zurich, Switzerland.
Dr. Gundry’s research interests involve the application of mass spectrometer and proteomics to human stem cell biology and cardiac development.
She will present a lecture and receive the award and honorarium during the upcoming US HUPO conference in Baltimore, Md., in early March.
