  • Sannie Olson, a fifth year biochemistry Ph.D. candidate, was awarded a Brown Graduate Fellowship of $10,000 for 2017-18. Sannie’s research in Professor Shogren-Knaak’s lab involves the SAGA family of nuclear complexes and how they are regulated in the process of nucleosome acetylation. With the work Sannie has accomplished, she could graduate this spring. However, the Brown award will help provide support for her to work towards finishing a developing story on how various SAGA subunits contribute to its regulation, and it is expected these results will be published several months into her fellowship.
