The prize consists of a cash award, a plaque, and a signed certificate. The 3 awards were presented instead of 1 due to the generosity of Drs. Peter and Pamela Tsao.
The awards were presented on January 9th in conjunction with the Student Invited Lectureship in the Genomics auditorium followed by a reception in the Genomics Lobby. This year's Student Invited Speaker was Dr. Joseph Heitman from Duke University.
