Grant: Mira Han

Mar 26, 2018

Mira Han (Life Sciences) was awarded a National Science Foundation Career Award for her research project, “Using Indel Rate Variation to Understand Evolutionary Constraints on Distances Between Functional Elements in the Genome.” Han will use the five-year, $574,068 award to study how insertion and deletion mutations impact the evolution of distances between functional elements, such as transcription factor binding sites in the genome. These prestigious awards are given to “faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization.”
