2008 Simons Fellow Christine Shrock named a 2008 Davidson Fellow, one of 5 to be awarded top prize of $50k from the Davidson Institute for Talent Development. Christine Shrock, of Ward Melville HS, worked with Dr. Carlos Simmerling, of Chemistry, on novel approaches for treatment for HIV, finding that protease, a protein crucial in the replication of HIV, would be a promising target for drugs to bind to and prevent it from performing its function.
