Fairhall receives Sloan Research Fellowship

Adrienne Fairhall, assistant professor of physiology and biophysics, has been awarded a Sloan Research Fellowship. The award is given to early-career scientists who show outstanding promise of making fundamental contributions to their fields. Fairhall is one of 16 neuroscientists chosen to receive the fellowship this year.

The Sloan fellowship includes $45,000, which can be used over a two-year period for research and career support. Fairhall is investigating information processing in sensory systems, by using experimental data and simple neural models.

She earned a doctorate in theoretical physics from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel in 1998. She came to the UW in January 2004 from Princeton, where she was a postdoctoral fellow. She also holds a fellowship for Careers at the Scientific Interface, supported by the Burroughs-Wellcome fund.

Three other UW faculty members also were winners this year: Daniel Chiu, assistant professor of chemistry; and Venkatesan Guruswami and Mark Oskin, both assistant professors of computer science and engineering.
