Todd Peterson (Ph.D. 2000) currently at the University of Arizona has been awarded one of the prestigious Burroughs-Wellcome Fund Career Awards at the Scientific Interface.  These awards are intended to provide bridging support ($538K over 5 years) for individuals trained in the physical or computational sciences now entering biological sciences. "Applicants are expected to draw from their training in a scientific field other than biology to propose innovative approaches to answer important questions in the biological sciences."  I believe there were 15 awarded nationally this year.  They are intended for the final two years of post-doctoral research and the first three years in a tenure-track faculty position.  Todd's proposal is centered about the development of miniaturized solid-state detector systems for in vivo medical imaging.
