Dr. Zachary Wehrspan awarded the 2023 Subramanian Thesis Award

Dr. Zachary Wehrspan, who completed his PhD in 2022 with Dr. Adrian Elcock, was awarded the 2023 Subramanian Award for the best PhD thesis in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the past year. Dr. Wehrpsan's thesis was entitled, "Whole cell models of Escherichia coli peptidoglycan." Zach is currently a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in Dr. Elcock's lab.

Congratulations Dr. Wehrspan!

The Subramanian Award is made possible by a gift from Dr. Alap Subramanian ('64 PhD), a 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.
