Peter Walter, PhD, professor and Howard Hughes Investigator in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, has received a 2018 Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences. This award recognizes him for “elucidating the unfolded protein response, a cellular quality-control system that detects disease-causing unfolded proteins and directs cells to take corrective measures.”
Come celebrate with coffee, donuts, and remarks from Chancellor Sam Hawgood, School of Medicine Dean Talmadge King and Walter.
