Dr. Tatiana Prytkova, assistant professor in Chemistry, has received a research grant from the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA) to study “The Protein Structure and Mobility Control of Electron Transfer Reactions in Ru-Modified Proteins.”

Dr. Prytkova is using her research to improve efficiency in solar power, which could help lead the energy revolution.

“These grants provide funds and encouragement for young professors to pursue their research, while at the same time encouraging them to bring their students into the lab to assist in real-world research projects,” said RCSA President and CEO James M. Gentile. “It is a highly effective way to help young scientists just starting out, as well as to encourage the next generation of students to enter America’s scientific workforce.”
