About UConn Structural Biology
The UConn Partnership for Excellence in Structural Biology brings together faculty, staff, and students to form an interactive research and training environment. We have active research programs in the structural analysis of macromolecular assemblies and membrane proteins, computational and experimental methods development, computational modeling, and analysis. Our major facilities include NMR, X-ray crystallography, Proteomics & Metabolomics core facilities as well as the National Center for Analytical Ultracentrifugation. The partnership supports collaborative research projects, interdepartmental graduate training and an annual symposium (NESS).

"Context-dependent regulation of the actin cytoskeleton influences macrophage function”
Dr. Rotty obtained a Bachelor’s degree in biology from Berea College. He then completed his PhD in the lab of Dr. Pierre Coulombe at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. This work revealed a novel regulatory role for keratin intermediate filaments in Src kinase signaling and cell motility, which jumpstarted his career-long interest in cell migration and the cytoskeleton. Dr. Rotty then completed his postdoctoral training in Dr. James Bear’s lab at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. His postdoctoral work revealed that the actin cytoskeleton is homeostatically regulated, and that the branched actin-polymerizing Arp2/3 complex is required for integrin-mediated extracellular sensing in macrophages. Since 2017, Dr. Rotty has been an assistant professor in the Department of Biochemistry at the Uniformed Services University where he continues to study cell migration, cytoskeletal regulation and extracellular matrix sensing.

NSF GRFP: Developing a Research Statement Plan 3:00pm
Wednesday, September 28th, 2022
03:00 PM - 04:00 PM
Other WebExThis particular session will cover how to develop and refine an effective research plan statement, one of the most important parts of your application. Attendees who have already worked with a faculty mentor to define the basics of their project idea will be positioned to get the most out of this session. You do not need to have attended the previous NSF GRFP application development sessions to benefit from this one. For the most up to date information on ONSF upcoming events, please visit https://www.onsf.uconn.edu/.
About NSF - GRFP The NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program is a prestigious award that supports research-oriented students in a wide range of STEM and social science fields during their first three years of graduate school. The award includes a $34,000 stipend plus a $12,000 Cost of Education Allowance.
Eligibility To be eligible, applicants must be either rising seniors or 1st year or 2nd year graduate students, plan on a PhD/research-oriented career, and be US Citizens or Permanent Residents. Eligible fields of study are: Chemistry, Computer and Information Science and Engineering, Engineering, Geosciences, Life Sciences, Materials Research, Mathematical Sciences, Physics and Astronomy, Psychology, Social Sciences, STEM Education and Learning Research.
This session will be held online but if you are interested in attending an in-person session, one will be held on 9/29 at 11:30am in HBL Class of 1947.
