Junior Jenny Dorth wins Human Biology's Frohnmayer Prize

Junior Jenny Dorth is the first recipient of the Kirsten Frohnmayer Prize, given to a Human Biology major who exhibits academic excellence, altruism and the potential to make a difference. This newly endowed prize honors the life of Human Biology graduate Frohnmayer, who died at 24 of Franconi anemia. The research grant given with the award is intended as an incentive to enable an individual early in his or her career to focus on an aspect of human biology. Dorth will use the grant to pursue an honors project on regulation of the immune system. SR
