Vivek Patel Wins 2012 Marmur Award

Vivek Patel is among the three winners of the 16th Annual Julius Marmur Award for Outstanding Graduate Research in 2012. Vivek will deliver a talk entitled “Spatial Arrangement of Conserved RNA Recognition Elements Marks Targets for Post-transcriptional Control” Vivek did his thesis research in the laboratory of Dr. Robert Singer, Dept. of Anatomy and Structural Biology.

The Award is given annually by the Einstein Graduate Division to honor the memory of Dr. Julius Marmur, a member of the faculty for 33 years, for his contributions to understanding the structure of DNA and for his lifelong commitment to graduate education. Dr. Marmur developed the first method to isolate highly purified, high quality DNA.


Publications by the winner include:

Chao JA, Patskovsky Y, Patel V, Levy M, Almo SC, Singer RH. (2010) ZBP1 recognition of beta-actin zipcode induces RNA looping. Genes Dev. 24(2):148-58.

Patel VL, Mitra S, Harris R, Buxbaum AR, Lionnet T, Brenowitz M, Girvin M, Levy M, Almo SC, Singer RH, Chao JA. (2012) Spatial arrangement of an RNA zipcode identifies mRNAs under post-transcriptional control. Genes Dev. 26(1):43-53.

Student Profile

Stefanie RaderThe MSTP anatomy class is great. We have a 1:4 ratio of faculty to students in lab and 1:12 in lectures. We get personalized attention from the faculty, and the timing of the course allows us to take graduate school courses during the first year of the program.
