Sigrid Leirmo Memorial Award in Biochemistry: Anna Fuezery

The Sigrid Leirmo Award is given to a graduate student or postdoctoral student who best exemplifies the spirit of Sigrid Leirmo. Sigrid received her PhD degree in Biochemistry in 1989 and was a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Bacteriology when she died tragically in an accident in 1990.  This award acknowledges a graduate student or postdoctoral student who is acknowledged by her/his peers and advisors as one who displays clear promise as a research scientist.  Most importantly, the award is to be designated in appreciation of the student's consistent willingness to contribute to the intellectual and technical potential of his/her fellow students and colleagues through the selfless help of others.

Congratulations Anna!
