CMB faculty, Dave Pagliarini, has received the U.S. government's highest honors for scientists "who show exceptional potential for leadership at the frontiers of scientific knowledge in the 21st century." He is 1 of 105 recipients nationally to receive the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). His lab focuses on the composition and function of mitochondria as well as "orphan" proteins used by the mitochondria. By figuring out how these proteins work together with the mitochondria they hope to find a link to disease and developing targeted therapies.
