Kathryn Armstrong recognized for research in biocalorimetry

Author: Alec Hipshear

Kathryn Armstrong, a third year graduate student in the Baker lab, received a cash prize for her oustanding research accomplishments in the field of biocalorimetry. Kathryn received her award at the 2005 Biocalorimetry Conference, held during July in Boston, MA. Kathryn's research is on the physical mechanisms T cell receptors use to recognize their ligand. Most recently, her focus has been on using isothermal titration calorimetry to gain insight into the thermodynamic basis for recognition. Her award specifically recognized the technical complexity and detail of her experiments.
