Summer Research Fellowship for Daniel Olson

Daniel Olson has been named as a 2017 CBSD Summer Graduate Fellow. Each year, the University of Montana’s Center for Biomolecular and Structural Dynamics supports a small number of graduate students for a summer of research. Daniel, will enter the grad program here in the fall but has already begun research on models for repetitive biological sequences. That he was granted a fellowship for the summer prior to his first year in a grad program is a testimony to the excellent contributions he has already made to research on this campus, beginning with Art Woods and continuing in the Wheeler lab. Congratulations, Daniel!

UM stands out for educational excellence

I’m proud to be a signatory on a guest column in today’s Missoulian, which highlights the terrific educational atmosphere and excellent research found on the University of Montana campus. Despite trying financial times resulting from an enrollment drop caused by multiple complex factors, this University is home to a great many tremendous educators and researchers.
