Neuroscience Ph.D. candidate Steven Flavell has been selected, along with a dozen other graduate students from North America, to receive the 2008 Harold M. Weintraub Graduate Student Award sponsored by the Basic Sciences Division of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (FHCRC). Nominations were solicited internationally with the winners selected on the basis of the quality, originality, and significance of their work.
Flavell will participate in a scientific symposium May 2 at the Hutchinson Center. The symposium will include scientific presentations by the awardees as well as poster presentations by Hutchinson Center graduate students. The award honors the late Harold M. Weintraub, a founding member of the center’s Basic Sciences Division and an international leader in the field of molecular biology.
