April 2020: Board of Regents grant awarded to Chemistry Professor!

Dr. Allyn Schoeffler was awarded $89,000 from the Louisiana Board of Regents' Research Competitiveness Subprogram grant to study molecular determinants of specialization in bacterial topoisoemerases from extreme environments. The funding will support Dr. Schoeffler’s undergraduate research in biochemistry, in which research students will investigate how molecular machines function in hot and cold environments through wet-lab and online bioinformatic analyses.
