Korolev receives 2017 Cottrell Scholar Award

November 30, -1

Assistant Professor Kirill Korolev received a 2017 Cottrell Scholar Award to investigate the benefits of chirality - a type of morphological asymmetry - in the microbial world. Korolev and colleagues will study competition between strains of cells with different chiralities with the aim of understanding the origin and role of these puzzling phenomena. Korolev will also develop a new course in modeling, nonequilibrium physics, and biophysics at Boston University.
