Lisa Ryno Awarded Grant from the National Science Foundation
September 29, 2022
Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Lisa Ryno was recently awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation, "Sugar-mediated remodeling of the E. coli transcriptome and its impact on biofilm growth and composition." This $534,002 grant will support student-faculty research on how monosaccharides influence both biofilm growth and composition. Because biofilms play a role in antibiotic resistance, better understanding of the biochemical pathways through which they form could have eventual applications in development of antibiotics or antibiofilm coatings.
