Pavlo Kravchuk won an award for his poster titled "Small organic osmolytes accelerate actin assembly." at the 2021 UCF Student Scholar Symposium in the Life Sciences category.

This year the Student Scholar Symposium took place virtually. As a graduate winner, he will be also provided with a $500 scholarship. Pavlo is a Nanotechnology Masters student with Dr. Ellen Kang. His research project is focused on understanding how small physiological osmolytes modulate actin filament assembly kinetics and dynamics. This study will help elucidate molecular mechanisms of how cytoskeletal protein dynamics are regulated in vivo.
