Hollaender Fellows Named

DOE announced the award of five FY 1998 Alexander Hollaender Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowships for up to 2 years of research at DOE laboratories having substantial programs supportive of the Office of Biological 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 science.

Fellowship winners were chosen from a field of 40 applicants who received their doctoral degrees after April 30, 1996. Listed below are each fellow's name, university and subject of doctoral degree, host laboratory and research mentor, and proposed research topic.

  • David Boisvert (Yale University, Genetics): University of California at Berkeley, Sung-Hou Kim. Structural approaches to understanding ribosome biogenesis and rRNA methylation at extreme temperatures.
  • Carl Friddle (Stanford University, Genetics): Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Edward Rubin. High-throughput functional analysis of expressed sequences in the mouse.
  • Thomas Kirchstetter (University of California at Berkeley, Environmental Engineering): Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Tica Novakov. Hygroscopic growth and optical properties of carbonaceous aerosols.
  • Timothy Onasch (University of Colorado, Chemistry): Brookhaven National Laboratory, Dan Imre. Studies of cloud particle formation mechanisms.
  • James Randerson (Stanford University, Biology): Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Inez Fung. Impact of disturbance in high-latitude terrestrial ecosystems on atmospheric measurements of CO2, 13CO2, and 14CO2.

Past winners are listed on the Web site ( A complete description of the program, including history and application forms, is at See See contact information for more about the 1999 Hollaender Fellowships.

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.
