The Department of Chemistry & Physics at Emmanuel College would like to introduce Dr. Allen Price as our new Department Chair! Dr. Price has been teaching at Emmanuel for eleven years and counting, offering courses in Physics, Biochemistry, Sustainability, and Energy and the Environment. Dr. Price also runs a research lab that specializes in using single molecule methods to study DNA-protein interactions. One of Dr. Price’s notable achievements in 2017 is that he was awarded his second National Science Foundation Research at Undergraduate Institutions grant. His proposal, “RUI: Elucidating the mechanisms of site specific DNA cleavage using single molecule methods”, was funded for over $340,00 and is being used to support undergraduate research in Biophysics.
