Tuesday, Feb 17, 2004

Stanislav Y. Shvartsman, assistant professor of Chemical Engineering at Princeton, and associated faculty member with the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, has been selected as an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow. Sloan research Fellowships recognize young scientists who show exceptional promise of making fundamental contributions to new knowledge in chemistry, computational and evolutionary molecular biology, computer science, economics, mathematics, neuroscience and physics. Sloan Research Fellowships are among the most competitive awards for young faculty in the sciences and engineering, and carry with them a $40,000 grant to be used in a flexible and largely unrestricted manner so recipients can pursue whatever lines of inquiry are of the most compelling interest to them. Shvartsman joined Princeton in 2001. He is interested in the development of quantitative models for cell communication in tissues.
