New Research Institute Supports Physician-Scientist

Feroz Papa, MD, PhD, was named a 2013 Harrington Scholar-Innovator by the Harrington Discovery Institute’s Scientific Advisory Board from a field of more than 130 applicants from 53 institutions. Dr. Papa’s research focuses on protein misfolding in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to quantify and predict levels of ER stress that promote the death of pancreatic islet beta cells and determine the role of the unfolded protein response (UPR) in the cell death process.
