Melissa Miller, a Princeton graduate student in molecular biology, has been awarded a 2002 Harold Weintraub Graduate Student Award from the Basic Sciences Division of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.
Miller, who works in the lab of Associate Professor Bonnie Bassler, was one of 17 graduate students from North America and Europe chosen for the award. The recipients, selected for the quality, originality and significance of their work, will participate in a scientific symposium in May in Seattle.
Princeton honored Miller earlier this year with its Porter Ogden Jacobus Fellowship, the University's highest award for graduate students. Miller also has received an award for the best talk by a graduate student at Princeton as well as the Department of Molecular Biology's outstanding teaching award.
