Prof. Andrew Feig joined the WSU faculty in the Department of Chemistry in 2006. He is a biochemist who oversees a laboratory that studies bacterial gene regulation by small non-coding RNAs and the biochemistry, chemical biology, and biophysics of Clostridium difficile toxins A & B. He has worked extensively on structural rearrangements of RNA and RNA protein interactions with an emphasis on the biochemistry and biophysics of those processes. He has a long-standing interested in heat capacity changes associated with these structural transitions and their impact on the regulation of biological processes. Professor Feig is a 2002 Cottrell Scholar, was Recipient of the WSU Career Development Chair (08/09), the CLAS Teaching Award (2012) and the WSU President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching (2013). In 2015 he was named PCSUM Michigan Distinguished Professor of the Year.
