The David and Lucile Packard Foundation has awarded evolutionary biologist David Stern its Packard Foundation Fellowship for Science and Engineering.
Stern, an assistant professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, was among 16 young scientists nationwide who received a Packard fellowship this year. The recipients were chosen from 99 nominations. The award includes an unrestricted research grant of $625,000 over five years.
Stern, who received a Ph.D. from Princeton in 1994 and joined the faculty in 2001, studies how genes evolve and interact with environmental factors to produce variations within and between species.
