For The RecordNSF Provides
To Three Hopkins
Three assistant professors at Hopkins were among 346 faculty
members nationwide who received Faculty Early Career Development
grants from the National Science Foundation during fiscal 1996.
The awards, which provide funding over four to five years, were
established to help scientists and engineers develop their
research and teaching skills early in their academic careers. The
1996 honorees were chosen from more than 1,800 applicants.
The Hopkins recipients were Bertrand Garcia-Moreno, an assistant professor of biophysics who studies the molecular basis of stability and folding of proteins; Louis Whitcomb, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering who is researching the unified nonlinear dynamics and control of robot systems; and Denis Wirtz, an assistant professor of chemical engineering, who set up a research and teaching program in complex fluid dynamics.
