Murphy, a professor of molecular biology and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, won the WICB Mid-Career Award for Excellence in Research, which is open to women seven to 15 years into their careers who have made exceptional scientific contributions to cell biology or effectively translated cell biology across disciplines, and who exemplify a high level of scientific endeavor and leadership. Murphy, who is also the director of the Paul F. Glenn Laboratories for Aging Research at Princeton University, is using genetics, molecular biology and genomics to study aging at the molecular and cellular level. Her goal is not simply to extend the human lifespan but to improve overall health, by understanding the molecular mechanisms governing longevity and the processes that exhibit age-related decline.
