UW MSTP student Ken Chen (E-11) was recently awarded a National Defense Science & Engineering Graduate Fellowship from the Department of Defense. Ken will be supported by this fellowship for 3 years and anticipates conducting his graduate research in the laboratory of Dr. Matt Kaeberlein. Ken’s research will focus on the basic biology of aging.

A movie has been made about UW MSTP associate director Mary-Claire King’s discovery of the BRCA1 breast cancer gene. Starring Helen Hunt as Dr. King, “Decoding Annie Parker” is currently being screened at film festivals and is slated for a fall release to theaters. There will be two Seattle showings at the Seattle International Film Festival on June 6 & 8. You can learn about the movie on its Facebook page.
