Stephen Brohawn, affiliate faculty in the Molecular Biophysics and Integrated Bioimaging Division, is one of four Berkeley Lab scientists who have been selected for the prestigious 2020 Sloan Research Fellowship. In recognition of their outstanding work in science, the winners receive a two-year, $75,000 fellowship, which can be spent to advance their work. A UC Berkeley assistant professor of molecular and cell biology, Brohawn studies life’s electrical system, which is responsible for sensation, thought, learning, memory and many other forms of communication within the body, from a molecular and biophysical perspective.
The other winners from the Lab are also assistant professors at UC Berkeley: Heather Gray, physics; Daniel Stolper, earth and planetary science; and Michael Zaletel, physics. For more information, read the Berkeley Lab Update.
