Prestigious chemist

The US National Science Foundation's (NSF) most prestigious award in support of junior faculty this year goes to Lisa M. Jones, an assistant professor of chemistry and chemical biology in the School of Science at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. The award of $1.1 million will help Jones carry on her work to develop a novel approach to the study of cell membrane proteins in their native cellular environment, research essential to gaining a better understanding of protein misfolding and its role in disease.
