Naomi Baxter to receive CCS Surf Fellowship

The College of Creative Studies (CCS) Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) is being awarded to Naomi Baxter to support her ongoing research on proteorhodopsin (PR), a transmembrane protein that functions as a proton pump. Naomi is making various mutations of the wild type protein in order to study oligomeric interactions and provide insight into specific features of oligomerization that influence function.
