Hollaender Fellows Named

DOE has announced the award of 11 FY 1997 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 sciences.

Fellowship winners were chosen from a field of 47 applicants who received their doctoral degrees after April 30, 1995. Two of the 11 were in genome-related topics. Listed below are each fellow's name, university of doctoral degree, host laboratory and research mentor, and proposed research topic. Winners in Genome-Related Topics

  • Jeffrey Koshi (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor): Los Alamos National Laboratory, William Bruno. Construction, Analysis, and Use of Optimal DNA Mutation Matrices.
  • Sandra McCutchen-Maloney (Texas A&M University): Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Michael Thelen. Structure and Function of a Damage-Specific Endonuclease Complex.

Winners in other topics are listed on the Web site. A complete description of the program, including history and application forms, is at http://www.orau.gov/ober/hollaend.htm.

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.

Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
