Hollaender Fellows Named

DOE has announced the award of five 1996 Alexander Hollaender Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships for up to 2 years of research at DOE laboratories having substantial programs supportive of the Office of Health and Environmental Research's mission. The mission is to understand health and environmental effects associated with energy technologies and to develop and sustain research programs in life, biomedical, and environmental sciences.

Fellowship winners were chosen from a field of applicants who received their doctoral degrees after April 30, 1994. Listed below are each fellow's name, university of doctoral degree, host laboratory and research mentor, and research topic.

  • Cymbeline Culiat (University of Tennessee, Knoxville): Oak Ridge National Laboratory; Lisa Stubbs. Cloning of a mouse gene causing severe deafness and balance defects.
  • Bruce Hungate(University of California, Berkeley): Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, Edgewater, Maryland; Bert Drake. Effects of elevated CO2 on soil hydrology: Links to N cycling and long-term ecosystem responses to rising CO2.
  • Michael Mann (Yale University): University of Massachusetts, Amherst; Raymond Bradley. Investigation of patterns of organized large-scale climatic variability during the last millennium.
  • Steven Ripp (Oklahoma State University): Center for Environmental Biotechnology, University of Tennessee, Knoxville; Gary Sayler. Potential for transduction and pseudolysogeny in a soil ecosystem.
  • Tau-Mu Yi (Massachusetts Institute of Technology): Laboratory of Structural Biology and Molecular Medicine, Los Angeles; James Bowie. Structure-function analysis of alpha-factor receptor.

Application deadline for the next round of Hollaender Fellowships is January 15, 1997.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
