Michael Carey is featured in UCLA Today

Michael Carey is featured in UCLA Today, having been selected as the author of one of the best articles published in 2012 in the Journal of Biological Chemistry. Dr. Carey’s article focuses on the development of organisms from fruit flies to man. This development relies on specific genes being turned on and off in a cell-specific, regulated manner. The editors selected 22 papers out of more than 4,000 published last year! Dr. Carey's paper represents the Genomics and Proteomics affinity group.

Congratulations to Larry Zipursky on his selection as a Fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science

Congratulations to Larry Zipursky, on his selection as a Fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science!

Larry was honored for “distinguished contributions to the field of developmental neurobiology, particularly for discovering molecular mechanisms underlying the assembly of neural circuits.”

In October 2012, the AAAS Council elected new members as Fellows of AAAS. These individuals will be recognized for their contributions to science and technology at the Fellows Forum to be held on 16 February 2013 during the AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. The new Fellows will receive a certificate and a blue and gold rosette as a symbol of their distinguished
