Beloit’s second candidate for the tenure-track position in Biochemistry will present a research talk today at 12:30 p.m. in Science Center 349 entitled “Insight into the role of a-Synuclein in Parkinson’s Disease using fluorescence methods.”
Elizabeth Middleton studies the membrane interactions of the intrinsically disordered protein a-Synuclein and its role in Parkinson’s Disease. She earned a B.A. in Chemistry in 2006 from Dartmouth College, an M.S. in Chemistry in 2007 from Yale University, and will complete the Ph.D. in Biophysical Chemistry at Yale University in summer 2011.
