Scripps Research Class of 2017 Arrives

Attending a series of orientation and welcoming sessions, the newest members of the Kellogg School of Science and Technology have begun their journeys toward doctorate degrees, for most a five-year path

In a welcoming lunch on the California campus and streamed live to Florida, Jaime Williamson, dean of the Kellogg School of Science and Technology, advised students to “dive into this playground… Work hard, play hard, think hard, and have a great time doing your science.”

Of the 41-member class, nine will study in labs on the Scripps Florida campus, 32 in California. Nearly evenly divided between aspiring biologists and chemists, the graduate students hail from institutions in every corner of the United States, including the University of Washington in Seattle, University of New Hampshire, University of San Diego, and South Florida College. International students represent six countries, including Great Britain, Germany, South Korea, Taiwan, Canada, and China.


Eveline Bouwens Wins Postdoctoral Fellowship

Eveline Bouwens, a research associate in the Mosnier lab, has been awarded an American Heart Association (AHA) Western States Affiliate Postdoctoral Fellowship for her project, “Functional regulation of endothelial protein C receptor by lipid editing.”

Award criteria include the applicant’s training plan and environment, and the proposal’s significance, approach, and innovation. The AHA award is intended to support the training of postdoctoral researchers through initial funding, leading to an independent career in cardiovascular and stroke research.
