Anna Berenson Receives First Place in the PhD on Tap 3MT Competition

Anna Berenson | Molecular Biology, Cell Biology & Biochemistry Program







Anna Berenson, an MCBB PhD candidate of the Fuxman Bass Lab, received joint first place in the 2023 PhD on Tap 3MT Competition. The competition took place as part of PhD on Tap, which is a full day research showcase sponsored by the Office of the Associate Provost for Graduate Affairs and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

In a project led by Anna, the Fuxman Bass Lab developed paired yeast one-hybrid assays to study DNA binding patterns of transcription factor pairs. Their work shows that extensive cooperativity and antagonism between transcription factors greatly affect their binding to gene promoters, and that viral proteins can modify the binding profiles of human transcription factors.

Congratulations, Anna!
