CAS professor receives third NIH award of the academic year

TAMPA, Fla. –- A professor in the Department of Cell Biology, Microbiology and Molecular Biology at the University of South Florida has earned another award form the National Institutes of Health.

Stan Stevens, Ph.D., has received his third NIH R21 award this academic year. R21 awards are exploratory developmental research grant awards aimed at novel studies that break new ground or extend previous discoveries in the new directions and impact biomedical, behavioral or clinical research.

This particular research study is entitled, “Impact of Ethanol-Induced Protein Nitration on the Histone Modification Code.” All of Stevens’ R21 awards involve proteomics, the large-scale study of proteins, particularly their structure and function.

Steven’s current research focuses on bioanalytical methods of development in the field of proteomics with application to understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying cellular dysfunction due to oxidative and nitrosative stress.
