IPiB’s Cox and Denu Elected as ASBMB Fellows

Biochemistry Professor Michael Cox and Biomolecular Chemistry Professor John Denu, have been named fellows of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB).

The 2021 fellows, the inaugural class, are a distinguished group of scientists who have contributed to multiple missions of ASBMB over a sustained period of time and enriched the world through their efforts and accomplishments.

The Cox lab studies DNA replication and repair and is best known for contributions to understanding the RecA and Flp recombinases, which have become widely used tools for biotechnology and developing transgenic model organisms.

The Denu lab investigates the mechanism and biological function of reversible protein modifications involved in modulating signal transduction, chromatin dynamics and gene activation.
