Patrick Short named 2013 Goldwater Scholar

thumbnailPatrick Short, a junior at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill majoring in applied mathematics and quantitative biology, has been awarded a 2013 Goldwater Scholarship. Among his multiple undergraduate research activities at Carolina (described in the full story available through UNC News), Patrick has done work on a sensitivity analysis of a mathematical model of the mitotic spindle, in collaboration with Professor Greg Forest, postdoctoral associate Paula Vasquez, and Prof. Kerry Bloom (UNC Biology). His genetic network data analysis started during his summer internship at Oxford has also continued here at Carolina in collaboration with Professor Peter Mucha.

Congratulations to Patrick on this important honor.

Addendum: Patrick Short has also received the Bardos Award from the American Associate for Cancer Research, enabling him to participate in AACR’s annual meetings for two years. He attended his first of these meetings recently, as described in an article on the AACR meeting out of UNC’s Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, and in Patrick’s own post in the OURblog.
