CNPRC scientists awarded prestigious honors
Dr. Candice (Kandee) Clay, a post-doctoral fellow in the CNPRC Respiratory Diseases Unit, was awarded a two-year Hartwell Postdoctoral Fellowship, beginning in June 2013. Dr. Clay’s application was chosen by the UC Davis Office of Research as an exemplification of the values of the Foundation, and selected to receive the two-year award.
Brain, Mind, and Behavior (BMB) doctoral student Katie Chun was one of only three students in the US and Canada who was honored with a 2012 Early Graduate Student Research Award from the American Psychological Association. She was chosen for demonstrating outstanding research abilities early in her graduate training, and showing a considerable level of independence in conducting her research.
Congratulations to Eliza Bliss-Moreau, Brain, Mind, and Behavior Unit, who was recently named one of the Association for Psychological Science’s (APS) “Rising Stars”. APS describes these young scientists as the “movers and shakers who are propelling science into new directions.” Dr. Bliss-Moreau was also one of two scholars awarded the 2013 UC Davis Excellence in Postdoctoral Research Awards, by the Office of Graduate Studies and the Graduate Council. This award recognizes the vital role that Postdoctoral Scholars play in maintaining the reputation of excellent research at the University of California, Davis.
