Congratulations to Dr. Jessica Kramer for receiving the 2023 David Y. Gin Young Investigator Award!

Professor Jessica Kramer obtained her Honors B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Utah and her Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from UCLA under the direction of Prof. Tim Deming. She joined the lab of Prof. Carolyn Bertozzi at Stanford and the University of California Berkeley as an NIH and University of California Chancellor’s postdoctoral Fellow. Prof. Kramer began her independent career at the University of Utah in the Department of Biomedical Engineering in 2017. Her lab utilizes a combination of polymer chemistry and protein engineering to probe fundamental questions in mucin glycobiology relevant to cancer and infection processes. She is the recipient of the Marion Milligan Mason Award (2022), an NIH MIRA (2022), an NSF RAPID (2020), an NSF CAREER Award (2018), Dream Chemistry Award (2017), an NIH NRSA (2015), the Henkel Award in Polymer Chemistry (2015), and most recently the David Y. Gin Young Investigator Award (2023).
