Seelig Awarded the 2011 Sloan Research Fellowship
Congratulations to Assistant Professor Georg Seelig for receiving the 2011 Alfred P. Sloan Research Award! Sloan Research Fellowships seek to stimulate fundamental research of early-career scientists and scholars that show outstanding promise. These two-year fellowships are awarded yearly to 118 researchers in recognition of distinguished performance and a unique potential to make substantial contributions to their field. Seelig’s research focuses on the intersection between biology and computer science – looking at how cells process information, as well as using DNA and RNA molecules to program cellular behavior.
This program recognizes the achievements of outstanding young scholars in science, mathematics, economics and computer science. Past recipients of Sloan Research Fellowships have gone on to win 38 Nobel prizes, 14 Fields Medals (mathematics), and eight John Bates Clark awards (economics).
