SOM lauds best young researchers
These are some heady times for Hong-Sheng Li, a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Medicine's Biological Chemistry Department. He is 7,500 miles from his home in China studying at "the world's top institute of biomedical research," he recently became a father, and this week both Li and his wife, Jianwu Bai, a predoctoral fellow in the same department, will be presented with prestigious Young Investigator Awards.
