Gitai Awarded Beckman Grant
Assistant Professor Zemer Gitai was recently awarded an Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation grant for his proposal: Quantitative Analysis of Cell Biological Dynamics in Bacteria. The award provides $300,000 over three years.
The Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation makes grants to non-profit research institutions to promote research in chemistry and the life sciences, broadly interpreted, and particularly to foster the invention of methods, instruments and materials that will open up new avenues of research in science. The Beckman Young Investigator (BYI) Program is intended to provide research support to the most promising young faculty members in the early stages of academic careers in the chemical and life sciences.
