Prof. Jacquelyn Fetrow selected for NIH Center for Scientific Review study section

Prof. Jacquelyn Fetrow, Reynolds Professor of Computational Biophysics and Director of the Graduate Track in Structural and Computational Biophysics, was selected by the National Institutes of Health to serve as a member of the NIH's Macromolecular Structure and Function D Study Section of the Center for Scientific Review. Her term is from September 1, 2007 to June 30, 2011.Members are selected on the basis of demonstrated competence and achievement in their scientific discipline as evidenced by the quality of research accomplishments, publications in scientific journals, and other significant scientific activities, achievements and honors.

Professor Fetrow joined the Departments of Physics and Computer Science at Wake Forest University in August, 2003, and she leads a research team focused on developing computational tools that will model the behavior of networks, both long-range communication networks within proteins and biological signaling and regulatory networks within the cell. Her group's work has the potential to improve our ability to identify drug targets. For more information on Prof. Fetrow's research, please see her website.
