Congrats to several lab members on receiving new fellowships! Marija received the Chemistry of Life Processes (CLP) University Fellowship, and the Biotechnology Training Program (BTP) appointed Erika and Tracey as Trainee members and Jake as a Cluster member. Congrats all!
Congratulations to Erika Arvay and Joseph Ni! Erika was awarded the NIH Biotechnology Training Program Cluster Fellowship, and Joseph was awarded the Northwestern Institute for Sustainability and Energy (ISEN) Cluster Fellowship. These are both highly competitive fellowships that recognize their efforts in these respective fields, and will allow them to each participate in various related efforts and training activities at Northwestern. Way to go kiddos!
This program provides Ph.D. students with the opportunity to develop their leadership as well as leadership in others. In addition, Fellows are introduced to the major theories, thinkers and frameworks for the study and practice of effective leadership.
Grace has won a Northwestern Undergraduate Research Grant (URG) for her proposal on engineering E. coli induction using carbon limitation signaling. Congrats Grace!
Congrats to Michael Reddick who earned a NSF Graduate Fellowship!
Lindsay Pietz has won the Cellular and Molecular Biology category at the Illinois Junior Academy of Science (IJAS) Competition based on her work in the Tyo lab. As one of the top 5 finalists from a group of 300, she will compete in the international science fair competiton, Intel ISEF.
Congratulations to Keith for his award on developing novel methods to drastically increase yields in the production of a range of biofuels.
The Northwestern Predoctoral Biotechnology Training Program is an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental program, which provides select graduate students (Trainees) greater research and training opportunities than those available through the individual departments.
Congrats, Dante, on the prestigious BTP fellowship!
Victoria has been awarded a summer research grant by the Program in Biological Sciences for her proposal “Optimization of protein yields in S. cerevisiae via degradation of endocytosis genes CLC1
Divya was awarded a summer fellowship from the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences for her proposal “Developing a Fast-Acting Readout for a Yeast-based Healthcare Diagnostic.”
The same proposal was awarded a grant from Chemistry of Life Processes. Only 3 awards are made per year for this competitive research fellowship.
