Biomolecular engineering professor Josh Stuart will be honored May 10 at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He will receive the 2006 Kalpana Chawla Outstanding Recent Graduate Award during the 76th Annual Alumni Awards Ceremony. The Kalpana Chawla Award recognizes alumni who have made exceptional contributions to their field within 10 years of graduation. This award was named to honor the CU-Boulder alumna who died aboard the Columbia space shuttle on February 1, 2003.

The award recognizes Stuart's work using large-scale computational approaches to explore how genes function and produce orchestrated cellular responses.

In 1996, Stuart received a double degree (B.S./B.A.) from UC-Boulder in computer science and molecular, cell, and developmental biology. He went on to earn a Ph.D. at Stanford University, after which he joined the biomolecular engineering faculty at UC Santa Cruz. He recently received an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship.
