  • Daniel F. Jarosz, PhD, with his sponsor Susan L. Lindquist, PhD, at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, Cambridge, Massachusetts, is investigating how the environment shapes the acquisition and expression of new traits a fundamental question with broad implications from carcinogenesis to drug resistance and evolution.

  • Chitra V. Kotwaliwale, PhD, with her sponsor Abby F. Dernburg, PhD, at the University of California, Berkeley, California, is defining the mechanisms underlying the spatial organization of chromosomes within the nucleus - a fundamental question that will provide insight into the causes of morphological changes in nuclei of leukemias and lymphomas.

  • Dipali G. Sashital, PhD, with her sponsor Jennifer A. Doudna, PhD, at the University of California, Berkeley, California, is studying the production of newly discovered small RNAs, and defining their combined function with a protein that plays a fundamental role in cancer cell proliferation.

  • Elizabeth S. Sattely, PhD, with her sponsor Christopher T. Walsh, PhD, at Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, is focusing her research on understanding how enzymes synthesize medicinal compounds in nature. Because many powerful chemotherapeutics are small molecules produced by microorganisms, her efforts will hopefully contribute to the discovery of next generation anticancer agents.

  • Alla A. Sigova, PhD, with her sponsor Richard A. Young, PhD, at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, Cambridge, Massachusetts, is discovering novel, non-coding RNAs that regulate the self-renewal and developmental potential of normal stem cells a critical step in understanding the origins of many aggressive cancers.

  • Sarah E. Tully, PhD, with her sponsor Benjamin F. Cravatt, PhD, at The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, California, is
