Geetu Tuteja, Assistant Professor, Department of Genetics, Development and Cell Biology, has received the 2015 Gregory L. and Kathleen C. Geoffroy Faculty Fellowship.
She will be recognized at the Liberal Arts and Sciences Fall Convocation and Awards Ceremony on Thursday, September 10, at 3:30 p.m. in the Sun Room of the Memorial Union.
Gregory L. and Kathleen C. Geoffroy Faculty Fellowship Supports the teaching and research program of an Assistant Professor in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences during the first three years of his/her appointment:
• Geetu Tuteja, Assistant Professor, Department of Genetics, Development and Cell Biology. Tuteja received her B.A. in computer science with a minor in chemistry from Boston University in 2004 and her Ph.D. in genomics and computational biology in the Department of Genetics, the University of Pennsylvania in 2009. From 2010 to 2015, Tuteja was a postdoctoral research fellow with Professor Gill Bejerano of Stanford University’s Beckman Center, within the Department of Developmental Biology, in Stanford, Calif. Her lab is broadly interested in transcriptional regulation, which is directed in part by the binding of sequence-specific transcription factors (TFs) to enhancer regions. Identifying cell-type specific enhancers is crucial for understanding the genetic architecture underlying development and disease.
