White House to honor UNC School of Medicine scientist for 'early career' achievement

CHAPEL HILL -- Dr. Brian Strahl, assistant professor of biochemistry and biophysics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine, will attend a White House ceremony Thursday (Sept. 9) afternoon in honor of his selection for the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.

The annual award is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on outstanding scientists and engineers who are beginning their independent careers.

In February 1996, President Bill Clinton commissioned the National Science and Technology Council to create an award program that would "honor and support the extraordinary achievements of young professionals at the outset of their independent research careers in the fields of science and technology."

The Presidential Awards are intended to recognize and nurture some of the nation's finest scientists and engineers who, while early in their research careers, show exceptional potential for leadership.

In addition to helping support the continued development of the awardees, the awards are designed to foster innovative and far-reaching developments in science and technology, increase awareness of careers in science and engineering, recognize the scientific missions of participating agencies, enhance connections between fundamental research and national goals, and highlight the importance of science and technology for the nation's future.

Strahl's research interests are chromatin biochemistry and gene regulation. Chromatin, a complex of nucleic acids and proteins, binds DNA into higher-order structures, ultimately forming a chromosome.

The National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health are among 11 federal agencies participating in the awards.

Strahl's award is associated with a five-year NIH research grant. In June, Strahl was one of 15 scientists chosen as 2004 Pew Biomedical Scholars by the Pew Charitable Trusts and the University of California at Sa
