CONGRATULATIONS TO TANYA PAULL:
Through a CPRIT grant for $1 million, Tanya Paull will be studying how double-stranded DNA is repaired after it breaks and how pathways to DNA repair affect the development of tumors.
Paull, a professor of molecular genetics and microbiology in the College of Natural Sciences and Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator, will be working with scientists from University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. She received a CPRIT grant last year for her research on signals in cancer cells that control their growth and death.
