Greg Kimmerer awarded The Biology Research Award in honor of Dr. Pat Marsteller

The Biology Research Award in honor of Dr. Pat Marsteller recognizes Biology majors who have excelled in research during their Emory careers. This year’s award went to Greg Kimmerer. As a member of the Rieder Lab, Greg used fluorescence microscopy and molecular cloning to investigate regulation of gene expression in the fruit fly. He specifically sought to determine whether DNA sequences that initiate chromatin structures in the fruit fly embryo are also necessary to maintain those chromatin structures in the adult organism.
