Chem Major Steven Barrett ’13 Wins NSF Graduate Fellowship
Chemistry major Steven Barrett ’13 has been awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Fellowship. Steven is currently a second year Ph.D. student in the Biochemistry Department at Stanford University where he studies the functions and biogenesis of circular RNA in Professor Julia Salzman's lab. Although circular RNAs are pervasively expressed, the mechanisms underlying their regulation and production are largely unknown. In the Salzman lab, Steven uses a combination of biochemical and genetic techniques to address these interesting questions. Steven is a ChEM-H predoctoral fellow, and his work is supported by the Stanford Graduate Fellowship. Congratulations!
