Britt Glaunsinger honored with Two Awards

April 5, 2011


Department of Plant and Microbial Biology Assistant Professor Britt Glaunsinger recently received two prestigious awards recognizing her outstanding contributions in research, teaching and service.

Assistant Professor Glaunsinger was selected as the 2011 recipient of the Prytanean Faculty Award. The award, which comes with a financial grant of $25,000, goes to an outstanding woman junior-faculty member who “has demonstrated scholarly achievement, a record as a distinguished teacher, and success as a role model for students at UC Berkeley.

Assistant Professor Glaunsinger was also the 2011 recipient of the CNR Young Faculty/CE Specialist award honoring a young assistant professor or CE specialist for outstanding contributions in research, teaching and service/outreach.

Glaunsinger investigates the mechanisms by which γ-herpesviruses promote global decay of cellular mRNAs during lytic infection and is especially interested in possible interplay between the viral host shutoff factor(s) and cellular mRNA degradation machinery.
