Brian Geesaman and Dan Henderson have been selected by the Association of Old Crows (the Electronic Warfare and Information Operations Association) to receive prestigious national awards this month for their work on the EA-6B program. Geesaman will receive the 2003 Offensive Information Warfare Award, given annually for significant advances in development or application of technologies for tactics related to information attacks on the adversary. Henderson will receive the 2003 Clark Fiester Command and Control Warfare Award, presented annually for outstanding achievement in development or application of C2 warfare strategies or systems.


Johns Hopkins Medicine

Craig Fletcher, a fellow in Comparative Medicine (veterinary) and a doctoral candidate in the Pathology Department's pathobiology graduate program, has been awarded a K08 Mentored Clinical Scientists Development Grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Fletcher, working in the lab of James Hildreth, will be studying the effect of statins on HIV biology. Fletcher's preliminary research suggests that statins, widely prescribed cholesterol-lowering medicines, can inhibit HIV-1 and SIV infection and replication in vitro.
