Hank Ashbaugh is working hard to unravel the mystery of unstructured proteins in the human genome, and he’s on a roll. An assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at Tulane, he has received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award and $431,000 in research funding for a five-year study.
Why is disorder the state of a quarter of the proteins in our bodies? asks Henry Ashbaugh. By asking questions like this about expanded and unstructured proteins and exploring answers through thermodynamics, Ashbaugh has received the Tulane President’s Early Career Development Award.
