Wellcome Summer Studentship Award

Megan Souness completed a Wellcome Trust funded project with Elliott Stollar this summer titled “The role of electrostatic interactions in SH3 domain structure and function”. Megan was successful in purifying and thermodynamically characterising over 20 SH3 domains. She was also able to study the role salt played on the folding kinetics of the SH3 domain from Abp1p and found that salt affects the folding rate much more than the unfolding rate. Her work will be included in a publication which is hoped to be submitted soon.
