Dr. Chris Ball receives 2022 Subramanian Thesis Award


Dr. Christopher Ball, who completed his PhD with Dr. David Price, was awarded the 2022 Subramanian Award for the best PhD thesis in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The Subramanian Award is made possible by a gift from Dr. Alap Subramanian, a 1964 PhD student from the department, who parlayed his training with the late George Kalnitsky, (and with Irving Klotz at Northwestern and both Bernard Davis and Herman Kalckar at Harvard Medical School), into a highly successful career at the Max-Planck-Institute.

Dr. Ball's thesis was entitled, "Mechanisms of transcriptional control during HCMV infections". Chris is currently at Jeannie T. Lee's Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School as a Postdoc.

Congratulations Dr. Ball!
