Matt McGue Wins Dobzhansky Award

Dear Colleagues,
I recently learned that Matt McGue is the recipient of the Behavior
Genetic Association's (BGA's) senior award for outstanding research
accomplishment in the field of behavioral genetics, the Dobzhansky
Award. This is the BGA's highest honor. The prize was named for
Theodosius Dobzhansky, one of the greatest geneticists of the 20th
century and the first President of the BGA. Matt received this award
last Thursday.
Please join me in congratulating Matt for this recognition of his
splendid contributions to research!
