UC researchers receive Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers
Fourteen University of California researchers are recipients of Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers, the highest honor granted by the U.S. government to scientific professionals in the initial phases of their careers.
Government agencies and departments select recipients annually based on the innovative nature of their research and their commitment to public service. This year, 105 scientists and engineers total earned awards.
The awardees represent seven different UC campuses: UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Irvine, UCLA, UC San Francisco, UC Santa Barbara, and UC Santa Cruz. The three UC-affiliated laboratories, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Los Alamos National Laboratory, were also represented.
