COBRE-PSF Member"Biophysicist in Profile" in Biophysical Society Newsletter

Sunday, January 15, 2012

COBRE-PSF member Wonpil Im was featured in the article "Biophysicist in Profile" in the January 2011 issue of the Biophysical Society Newsletter. The article commends Im's dedication to his science and describes his career progress so far, including his postdoc with Charles Brooks III, Warner-Lambert/Parke-Davis Professor of Chemistry and Professor of Biophysics at the University of Michigan.

Brooks, Im, and postdoc Michael Lee developed and implemented the GBSW approach and collaborated with Michael Feig, now associate professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Michigan State University, to generalize it to the treatment of membrane environments. “Wonpil is a very energetic and enthusiastic colleague,” says Feig in the article, “always full of ideas and never discouraged to pursue a scientific question he set out to explore.”
