Nickels Lab

Nickels Awarded $1.2 Million Grant

Bryce Nickels, Associate Professor in the Department of Genetics, School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers University–New Brunswick, is the principal investigator of an award totaling $1,224,500 over four years. The project, titled Systematic Analysis of Protein-Nucleic Acid Interactions during Transcription, is supported by the National Institutes of Health.

Nickels named a Rutgers-New Brunswick Chancellor Scholar

One of the initiatives of the New Brunswick Strategic Plan is the creation of a Chancellor's Excellence Fund. An initiative emanating from this fund is the designation of a select group of faculty members at the associate professor level as “Chancellor’s Scholars.” These individuals are nominated by their deans, and will carry the designation of “Chancellor Scholar” for up to five years. They will also receive an addition to their research account.

Individuals who have been selected as the initial group of Chancellor’s Scholars:

Principal Investigator

Our lab studies transcription, the first step in gene expression, whereby the genetic information coded in the DNA is utilized for the synthesis of RNA. The findings could lead to the discovery of an exciting but previously unrecognized class of regulatory RNAs, and could also suggest novel strategies for treating or controlling microbial infections.
