2018 Kaushal Family Awards in Genetics

August 8, 2018

The Department of Genetics is pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 Kaushal Family Awards in Genetics, which recognize excellence in genetic research by predoctoral and postdoctoral scholars, as evidenced by a notable publication. The award winners, Yong Kim (MD/PhD student in Mitch Lazar’s lab) and Takashi Akera (postdoc in Michael Lampson’s lab), were chosen by the Department of Genetics faculty in a secret ballot, based on the publications’ contents and the applicants’ descriptions thereof. Yong’s paper on transcriptional control of circadian rhythms and Takashi’s paper on asymmetric segregation of chromosomes were deemed highly innovative and impactful studies .

Please join us at a special award ceremony on Friday November 16, 2018 (12:30-1:30pm in CRB Austrian Auditorium) with presentations by the recipients.
