Biochemistry PhD Dissertation Awarded to Yuxi Liu

Graduating PhD student Yuxi Liu from the Yeates lab has been awarded the Biochemistry PhD Dissertation Award from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry for her outstanding research accomplishments. Dr. Liu has pioneered the development of designed protein scaffolds that make it possible to image small proteins by cryo-EM. Proteins smaller than about 50 kDa have until now been beyond the scope of cryo-EM methods.
