Award Description: The research supplement will be used to support the training of a Latino/Hispanic American (Mexican Descent) postdoctoral scholar who is currently working in an Infectious Diseases Laboratory at School of Public Health, University of California at Berkeley. The research of the postdoctoral scholar will integrate areas of biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, and virology. This will allow the postdoctoral scholar to gain a fundamental understanding of the mechanisms of RNA catalysts (ribozymes) and to explore the use of these ribozymes for gene-targeting applications. This research experience will certainly expand and foster the postdoctoral scholar's independent research capabilities and prepare the postdoctoral scholar for a successful career in biomedical sciences. After training in the Infectious Diseases Laboratory, the postdoctoral scholar will be capable of setting up his/her own laboratory, formulating a research program, and carrying out research on developing and using ribozymes for gene targeting applications such as in the studies of human cancer and antiviral therapy. The research supplement will also allow for the creation of one postdoctoral scholar job.
Project Description: The project has not been started and there are no quarterly activities to report.
