The American Society for Microbiology honors Bess B. Ward
Date:6/7/2012

Washington, DCJune 6, 2012 Bess B. Ward, William J. Sinclair Professor of Geosciences, Department of Geosciences, Princeton University, has been presented the 2012 Procter & Gamble Award in Applied and Environmental Microbiology. This award recognizes distinguished achievement in research and development in applied and environmental microbiology. "Ward has had a sustained and substantial influence on the field of marine microbiology over her career, directly through her seminal efforts defining the physiology, biogeochemistry, and molecular phylogeny of organisms responsible for key processes in the marine N cycle, nitrate reduction, nitrification, and denitrification, as well as through her mentoring and leadership," explains nominator Douglas Capone, University of Southern California. "She is currently in hot pursuit of factors which control the activity of denitrifiers and anaerobic ammonium oxidizers in the major oxygen minimum zones of the world's oceans."

Ward received her undergraduate degree in zoology at Michigan State University, Lansing, and her Ph.D. in Oceanography from the University of Washington, Seattle. Ward then held postdoctoral and research scientist positions at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California. She next joined the Department of Ocean Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz as an assistant professor, becoming department chair after six years, before moving to Princeton. She has been department chair at Princeton for six years, in a department with research specialties spanning the entire range from theoretical seismology to her own work in marine microbiology.

Ward's research centers on the biogeochemistry of nitrogen in the marine environment. A major and continuing theme in her work is nitrification, a topic that has seen many important developments in recent years. She continues to work on nitrogen cycling in low oxygen regions of the world ocean. Her other studies include methan
