Claire de la Cova Receives Grant from National Cancer Institute

Claire de la Cova (Biological Sciences) received an NIH R03 grant for $152,000 from the National Cancer Institute titled “Mechanisms of protein degradation that control signal transduction by Ras-Raf-MEK-ERK.” The research uses the animal model C. elegans to identify novel cellular mechanisms that promote destruction of  Raf, a protein kinase commonly found to be hyperactive in human melanomas.

Congratulations Claire!
