tter and materials. Chan has performed pioneering research in the field of numerical simulation of highly correlated quantum systems in chemistry and physics. Such calculations will quantify and predict many properties of materials important to chemistry, physics, and biology. Supported by Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, the Baker Award includes a $15,000 prize and recognizes innovative young scientists and encourages research likely to lead toward new capabilities for human benefit.

Joseph L. DeRisi, professor, Howard Hughes Medical Investigator, and Gordon Tomkins Chair at the University of California, San Francisco, is the recipient of the John J. Carty Award for the Advancement of Science. DeRisi is being honored for developing new genomic technologies and using these technologies to make discoveries in virology that are of fundamental and practical importance. The Carty Award, presented with a medal and a prize of $25,000, is given for noteworthy and distinguished accomplishment in any field of science and is presented this year in the field of genome biology.

Allison J. Doupe, professor of psychiatry and physiology at the University of California, San Francisco, is the recipient of the Pradel Research Award. Doupe is being honored for her groundbreaking work using songbirds to reveal important features of how neural circuits process information and are shaped by experience. The Pradel Research Award includes $50,000 to support the winner's research.

Sarah Blaffer Hrdy, Professor Emerita of the University of California, Davis, is the recipient of the NAS Award for Scientific Reviewing presented this year in human-biosocial interactions. Hrdy has published a series of books and scholarly reviews that have drawn together data and concepts from across the social and biological sciences to synthesize a new understanding of the ways in which natural selection has shaped women's lives, mother-infant interactions, and the foundations of human
