2013 AAAS Lifetime Mentor Award goes to Andrew Tsin of the University of Texas at San Antonio
Date:2/12/2014

Andrew Tsin has been awarded the 2013 Lifetime Mentor Award of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for his efforts in "facilitating dramatic education and research changes at his institution, leading to a significant production of Hispanic American doctorates in the biological sciences."

Tsin, who is a professor of biology and director of the Center for Research and Training in the Sciences at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), will receive his award during a 14 February ceremony at the 2014 AAAS Annual Meeting in Chicago, Ill.

An internationally recognized biochemist and cell biologist, Tsin also is a leader in science education and training programs. Over more than three decades, he has successfully mentored more than 130 students in his vision research lab, including a dozen doctoral students in the biological sciences, nine of whom are Hispanic Americans. Eleven of his Hispanic American undergraduate students also earned doctorates at other institutions.

In nominating Tsin for the award, George Perry, dean of the College of Sciences at UTSA, wrote: "Since many of our students are the first in their families to attend university, Dr. Tsin actively engages his students, and goes beyond what is expected by providing mentoring, extra assignments, and degree/career counseling that gives the extra support" that students from under-represented minorities often need. Perry added: "The significant contribution of Dr. Tsin's mentoring is evidenced in the successes of his mentees: 100% of his undergraduate and graduate students completed their degrees and have continued in their educational track or have entered successful scientific careers."

Tsin also helped UTSA obtain $68.5 million in grant funding to establish programs aimed at under-represented minorities. Perry said Tsin "has contributed more than any individual to the dramatic transformation, expansion and impact of UTSA's science educ
