aces that will provide step-by-step cues for directing cell fate and behavior.

  • Brian A. Cobb, Ph.D., Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine assistant professor of pathology, who will develop new tools to study how the immune system recognizes carbohydrate molecules and how they may be used in vaccine development.

  • Ronald D. Cohn, M.D., Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine assistant professor of pediatrics and neurology at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, who will study the mechanisms underlying the ability of hibernating mammals to maintain skeletal muscle mass despite prolonged periods of immobility.

  • Xiangfeng Duan, Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry, who will develop a new generation of integrated nanoprobes for monitoring, mapping, and manipulating neural activities with unprecedented speed and sensitivity.

  • Seth J. Field, M.D., Ph.D., University of California, San Diego, assistant professor of medicine, who will develop a multipronged, systematic approach to understand the function of lipid molecules that transmit signals within cells.

  • Zemer Gitai, Ph.D., Princeton University assistant professor of molecular biology, who will use novel imaging methods to identify new classes of antibiotic drugs and drug targets.

  • Aaron D. Gitler, Ph.D., University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine assistant professor of cell and developmental biology, who will use novel genetic screening and cell biological approaches to define the mechanisms of human neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

  • David H. Gracias, Ph.D., Johns Hopkins University assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, who will develop mobile, micro- to nanoscale tools and devices for medicine.
