Assistant Professor Daniel Chiu was one of four UW faculty members awarded a highly competitive and prestigious Sloan Research Fellowship from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Sloan Research Fellowships are granted to enhance the careers of the top young academics in the sciences, and they carry a $40,000 grant over a two-year period. Currently there are 116 fellowships awarded annually across seven fields: chemistry, computational and evolutionary molecular biology, computer science, economics, mathematics, neuroscience, and physics.
