Dr. William Hacker receives 2021 Subramanian Thesis Award

Dr. William Hacker, who completed his PhD with Dr. Adrian Elcock, was awarded the 2021 Subramanian Award for the best PhD thesis in the Department of Biochemistry. 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. Hacker's thesis was entitled, "Computational modeling of the Escherichia coli chromosome and integrated simulations of bacterial transcription and translation." William is currently a Postdoctoral Research Schoalr in Dr. Elcock's lab.

Congratulations Dr. Hacker!
