Professor Lori Goldner won an Armstrong Fund for Science Award, a grant intended "to encourage transformative research that introduces new ways of thinking about pressing scientific or technical challenges". The award will fund Goldner's experiments to observe individual protein molecules. The technique, unique to her laboratory, traps molecules in tiny water droplets dispersed in oil so that they can be observed by a sensitive fluorescence microscope. more
