Stephanie Bester wins 2019 SER-CAT Young Investigator Award
Stephanie Bester, doctoral candidate in the Department of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences (PBS), has been selected as a co-recipient of the 2019 SER-CAT Young Investigator Award. SER-CAT (Southeast Regional Collaborative Access Team), an organization of 22 member institutions, was formed in 1997 to provide third-generation x-ray capabilities to macromolecular crystallographers and structural biologists in the southeastern region of the U.S. SER-CAT is located at the Advanced Photon Source, Argonne National Laboratory, and is operated by the University of Georgia as one of only four third-generation, hard x-ray synchrotron radiation light sources in the world.
Stephanie will receive the Young Investigator Award at the annual SER-CAT Symposium in Birmingham in March. Her major professor is Dr. Scott Pegan, Associate Professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences and Interim Director of the UGA Center for Drug Discovery. Congratulations, Stephanie!
