Date:7/9/2014

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Jason Stajich, an associate professor of plant pathology and microbiology at the University of California, Riverside, has been awarded the 2014 Alexopoulos Prize by the Mycological Society of America, a scientific society dedicated to advancing the science of mycology the study of fungi of all kinds including mushrooms, molds, truffles, yeasts, lichens, plant pathogens, and medically important fungi.

The award is peer-nominated and each year recognizes an outstanding early-career mycologist. Stajich received the award last month in East Lansing, Michigan, at the annual meeting of the Mycological Society of America. The award consists of a plaque and a monetary award of $1,000.

"I am honored to win the Alexopoulos Prize," Stajich said. "I have not yet decided how I will spend the prize money but I intend to support a project in the lab or to support travel for collecting more strains tied to chytrid work."

Nominees for the Alexopoulos Prize are judged on the quality, originality and quantity of their published work.

"Dr. Jason Stajich is an outstanding choice for the Alexopoulos Prize," said Katherine A. Borkovich, the chair of the Department of Plant Pathology and Microbiology. "Since starting his position at UC Riverside in July 2009, he has published more than 33 papers and review articles."

Stajich received his doctoral degree at Duke University in 2006. He held a postdoctoral appointment at UC Berkeley from 2006 to 2009. His research interests include using genomic approaches to study fungal biology and evolution, including fungal cell wall evolution, the evolution of multicellularity in
