Dr. Jennifer (Jake) DeLuca, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, is one of 17 recipients of the 2009 Pew Scholars Award in the Biomedical Sciences. The award recognizes the most promising scientists in biomedical research each year with a $240,000 grant for 4 years, allowing them to pursue high-risk high potential research that would otherwise not be supported by the standard funding mechanisms.
Congratulations Jake! This is a very well deserved honor.
