Two graduates of the COBRE in Protein Structure and Function program were among those honored last month with Kemper Fellowship Awards for outstanding teaching and advising. This year’s Lawrence campus winners and COBRE graduates included Heather Desire, associate professor of chemistry, who now serves on the COBRE-PSF internal advisory committee, and Audrey Lamb, assistant professor of molecular biosciences, who is a member of the COBRE-PSF Protein Structure Core Laboratory advisory steering committee. And a camera crew was on hand when they received their awards.
In all, 20 faculty members will receive the fellowships on both The University of Kansas campus in Lawrence and on the Medical Center campus in Kansas City, Kansas. The fellowships, determined by a faculty panel, recognize faculty members for outstanding teaching and advising and come with a $5,000 award.
