KU Researcher Receives Prestigious Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship
Im's research could have applications in nanotechnology and pharmaceuticals.
"The aim of our work is to understand human disease at the molecular level," said Im. "If you look at the drugs that we're using now, about 50 percent of commercial drugs are targeting membrane proteins. As our research progresses, we hope to help make a map to develop the drugs of the future."
A committee of researchers reviews more than 500 nominations each year to determine a final selection of 116 Sloan fellows in seven scientific fields.
