Congratulations Xiao Peng! The 2020 Ross Hallett Memorial Scholarship in Biophysics Winner

Peng Xiao obtained his BSc in Physics from Beijing University, and his MSc in Condensed Matter Physics from Brock University. He began his PhD in Biophysics at the University of Guelph in 2016, determining, at the atomic level, how membrane proteins fold into their functional states. This subject is both of fundamental importance and of medical relevance, as membrane protein misfolding is associated with many debilitating disorders.
