Two Honors for BC’s Weerapana

Assistant Professor of Chemistry Eranthie Weerapana has been awarded a pair of prestigious young investigator awards to support her research into identifying new protein activities implicated in cancer and aging, and developing small molecules to perturb these activities within a cellular environment.

Weerapana, a chemical biologist in her second year at BC, described her experimental research as “highly interdisciplinary” – pushing the science of synthetic and analytical chemistry to explore and better understand biological systems. To read more, please click here.
