Widom is the recipient of an American Heart Association Career Development Award to support her research using single-molecule fluorescence techniques to study the structure and dynamics of heart-specific long noncoding RNAs linked to disease. Widom and members of her physical chemistry research group at the UO are helping to guide the development of therapies for conditions that induce cardiac stress. Widom earned her Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Oregon and was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan before joining the UO faculty in 2018.
