Dr. Kate Beishline Awarded Kozloff Faculty Fellowship
Dr. Kate Beishline
Dr. Kate Beishline has received a Kozloff Faculty Fellowship. The four-year annual renewal fellowship includes a stipend for research needs that Dr. Beishline will use as she mentors freshman biology/pre-medical sciences major, Tara Herzog, recipient of a Kozloff Reasearch scholarship. Dr. Beishline became a faculty member in Biological and Allied Health Sciences in 2017. Her current research interests are focusing on the pathways which regulate the transcription and replication of eukaryotic telomeres. She is focused on the mechanism by which the genome binding factor CTCF, and its only paralog BORIS, are participating in the maintenance of telomere structures and how these functions may be important in cancer and normal cellular aging. She earned her B.S. in Biochemistry at the University of the Sciences and her Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Drexel University College of Medicine.
