Congratulations to Ari! 

Mr. Ari Selzer, a 3rd year PhD student in Dr. Tom Smithgall’s lab in the MBSB program, received an NIH F31 Ruth Kirschstein predoctoral fellowship from the National Cancer Institute.  Ari’s research project is centered on developing and characterizing small molecule allosteric regulators of Src-Family Kinases as drug candidates for acute myeloid leukemia. Ari’s project incorporates structural determination of small molecule-kinase complexes along with biophysical and cellular experiments to understand the mechanism of action of this novel class of drug candidates. Congratulations once again!!
