Parker awarded $110,000 from ACS for biomacromolecule research

Kimberly Parker, assistant professor of energy, environmental and chemical engineering in the McKelvey School of Engineering, received $110,000 from the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund for her proposal “Behavior of Enzymes at the Interfaces of Minerals and Non-Aqueous Liquids.”

A primary scientific goal of Parker’s research group is to understand the behavior of biomacromolecules like nucleic acids and proteins in environmental and energy systems.
