Several of our students were the recipients of prestigious awards this year. Lisseth Silva was named as an NSF doctoral fellow, following in the footsteps of Joslynn Lee last year. Another of the 2013 awards went to BS-MS alumna Lauren Chapman who is studying for her PhD at the California Institute of Technology. Another award was bagged by doctoral student Chiara Chapman, who won the best poster competition from the ACS division of medicinal chemistry for her presentation on metabolite analysis.
