Date:5/12/2011

BALTIMORE, May 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Maryland Academy of Sciences and the Maryland Science Center have selected the 2011 recipients of its Annual Awards which recognize the accomplishments of young leaders in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Dr. Ian Appelbaum, Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Maryland, will receive the Outstanding Young Scientist (OYS) award and Dr. Ganesh Sriram, Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Maryland, will receive the Outstanding Young Engineer (OYE) award. At the presentation of the awards on May 26, Dr. Ian Appelbaum will be the first recipient of the newly-endowed award named in memory of Alexander M. Haig, Jr., and Dr. Ganesh Sriram will receive the Allan C. Davis Medal. Each will also receive a cash award.

In addition, two Baltimore, Maryland high school students will be awarded the Dr. H. Bentley Glass Scholarship at the May 26 event. Dakyra Tatyana Blount from National Academy Foundation High School and Tihitina Ayele Chamiso from Patterson High School will each receive a $1,500 college scholarship.

OYE/OYS Awards

The OYS and OYE awards recognize Maryland residents who are 35 years of age or younger and have distinguished themselves early in their careers for significant scientific accomplishments. Dr. Ian Appelbaum and Dr. Ganesh Sriram were selected by members of the Maryland Academy of Sciences' Scientific Advisory Council, which provides expertise and content review to the Maryland Science Center. Dr. Ian Appelbaum was honored for his work integrating silicon-based information technology with spin-based electronics, and Dr. Ganesh Sriram's work involves the application of biology, chemical engineering, experimental design, and statistical and computational mathematical concepts to the mapping of metabolic pathways in both plants and animals.

Glass Scholarships

The Dr. H. Bentley Glass Scholarship was created in 1965 to honor and support academically capable students who need financial assistance to attend college. The award recognizes academic accomplishment; a commitment to pursue post-secondary studies in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics; and personal achievement. Dakyra Tatyana Blount will pursue studies in biology in the fall at Towson University in anticipation of a career in the medical field, and Tihitina Ayele Chamiso plans to purse college coursework that will prepare her to become a doctor.
