Matthews Named Scialog Fellow

Megan Matthews, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, was named a Scialog Fellow by the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA), a foundation that aids basic research in the physical sciences at U.S. colleges and universities.

Scialog, an RCSA program, supports cohorts of early-career scientists addressing globally significant challenges, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and high-risk research of untested ideas. The 2018 Fellows will focus on the chemical machinery of the cell with the aim of better understanding cellular processes at the molecular and atomic levels.

Matthews joined the Penn faculty in 2017. Research in the Matthews group unites enzymology and chemical biology to develop novel chemical proteomics technologies for the discovery of enzyme cofactors and regulatory post-translational modifications that cannot readily be predicted by gene or protein sequence.
