Young investigators honored
When Mette Strand, a world-class researcher and outstanding
graduate-student educator at Hopkins, died last fall, her
colleagues in research and education wanted to remember her in a

annual award for student research named for Strand.

bestowed in honor of the senior partner of the Baltimore law firm
of Hinkley and Singley.
