Congratulations to Darian!

Mr. Darian Yang, the second-year MBSB student, is currently supported by the fellowship through the University of Pittsburgh's Pitt AIDS Research Training (PART) Program. This fellowship will fund a research project titled “Joint Computational and NMR Characterization of Early HIV-1 Capsid Assembly at the Atomic Level”, carried out in the labs of Profs. Chong and Gronenborn in the departments of Chemistry and Structural Biology, respectively, at the University of Pittsburgh. 

Recently, Darian was also recognized with "honorable mention” from National Science of Foundation, for his excellence on NSF fellowship application. See the Pittwire News.
