A number of current and former BSI-funded undergraduate students have co-authored scientific journal articles published in the last few months. CU Boulder alumni William Van Patten and Ayush Adhikari, who both worked in the lab of Dr. Thomas Perkins of MCDB & JILA during their time as undergraduate researchers, have both been listed as co-authors on two recent publications. Improved Free-Energy Landscape Quanitification Illustrated with a Computationally Designed Protein-Ligand Interaction was published in ChemPhysChem in early January of this year, while Going Vertical To Improve the Accuracy of Atomic Force Microscopy Based Single-Molecule Force Spectroscopy was published in ACS Nano in late December 2017. 

Current BSI Scholar Cathryn Toomey, working in the lab of Xuedong Liu of biochemistry, co-authored a paper in Nucleic Acids Research that was published in December 2017. Toomey's work contributed to the paper, which is titled Genome-wide dose-dependent inhibition of histone deacetylases studies revel their roles in enhancer remodeling and suppression of oncogenic super-enhancers. Working in a different biochemistry lab at CU Boulder, former BSI Scholar Theo Koelsch was a co-author on Chemically Precise Glycoengineering Improves Human Insulin, which was published in ACS Chemical Biology in December 2017. Theo worked in the lab of Zhongping Tan during his time as a BSI Scholar. 

Congratulations to these students for their hard work and publications!
