Congratulations to Sri Narayan
Professor Sri Narayan has been chosen to receive the prestigious "2015 Phi Kappa Phi Faculty Recognition Award for his original research on Batteries for Electrical Energy Storage" at USC. The award will be given at the Academic Honors Convocation on April 15, 2015 . Please join us in congratulating Professor Narayan on this wonderful recognition for his research accomplishments.

Assistant Professor Chao Zhang recognized with NSF CAREER award
Chao Zhang has been awarded an National Science Foundation CAREER award for his research into the Chemical Genetic Dissection of Cell Signaling. The award is for $650,000 over 5 years. The award will support the development of chemical strategies for identifying, designing and synthesizing small-molecule modulators that disrupt the functioning of proteins involved in cell signaling processes.

Congratulations to Myron Goodman
Myron Goodman was selected as the recipient of the 2015 Environmental Mutagenesis & Genomics Society (EMGS) Award.
Myron is recognized for his multiple seminal discoveries concerning molecular mechanisms responsible for accurate and inaccurate DNA synthesis that have contributed to advancements in understanding carcinogenesis, heart disease, heritable birth defects, AIDS, and the development of the immune system. (see
Myron will give the award lecture in New Orleans at the EMGS meeting in September.
