Award Winner Lauded for Teaching

Lisa Gentile, left, invites high school teachers and students from schools serving underrepresented minorities to work alongside her research group each summer.

The quantitative science course, to be offered over two semesters to first-year students, is funded in part by a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Ten faculty members — two from each discipline — spent last year developing the course and are now working on implementation, Gentile said.

Gentile’s inclusive approach also carries over into her lab. Each summer, she invites high school teachers and students from schools serving underrepresented minorities to work with her research group, which studies the structure and function of proteins.

In recognition of the ASBMB award, bestowed annually for effective teaching of biochemistry and molecular biology through leadership, writing, educational research, mentoring and/or outreach, Gentile will give a plenary lecture, “Dynamics of PKA Signaling,” at the society’s annual meeting April 24–28 in Anaheim, Calif.

Angela Hopp is managing editor for special projects at ASBMB. She can be reached at ahopp@asbmb.org.
