Congratulations to Professor Jenny Tung

Prof. Jenny Tung

We join the Department of Evolutionary Anthropology in congratulating Associate Professor Jenny Tung on winning a MacArthur Fellowship.  According to the MacArthur Foundation, fellowships are awarded based on three criteria:  exceptional creativity, promise for important future advances based on a track record of significant accomplishments, and potential for the Fellowship to facilitate subsequent creative work.  "The fellowship is not a lifetime achievement award, but rather an investment in a person's originality, insight, and potential."  Jenny is recognized for her work connecting social status, genomics, and health in baboons.  The Biology Department is proud to have contributed to Jenny's formation as a scientist through her undergraduate and graduate degrees.
