UC Riverside plant biotechnologist receives prestigious Jefferson Science Fellowship
Date:8/26/2011

included in Who's Who in America; and in Canada. A recipient of the Book of the Year Award, 2000, from the Canadian Science Writers Association, McHughen is a recipient of the Robert Anderson Fellowship in Biochemistry from Yale University and a research fellowship from the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851.

The Jefferson Science Fellowship program is administered by the National Academies and supported through a partnership between the U.S. academic community, professional scientific societies, the U.S. Department of State and USAID. Fellows are U.S. citizens and tenured academic scientists and engineers from institutions of higher learning in the country.

Each fellow receives a stipend from the U.S. Department of State for living expenses for a full year; additional funding is available to each fellow for travel associated with his/her assignment. In addition, fellows continue receiving salaries and benefits from their home institutions. After the fellows return to their institutions, they remain available as consultants to the State Department for an additional five years.

Named after Thomas Jefferson, the fellowship program is in its eighth year.

McHughen already has begun his tenure as a Jefferson Science Fellow and is currently in Washington D.C. He is the third Jefferson Science Fellow at UCR. In 2004, toxicologist David Eastmond, currently the chair of the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience, received the fellowship. In 2010, entomologist Thomas Miller received the fellowship.
