The purpose of this prize is to recognize a graduating senior(s) for his or her outstanding research as an undergraduate major in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology. The award consists of a certificate and a cash prize funded through the generosity of Dr. Sangram S. Sisodia, who earned his Ph.D. degree in the department, and honors his mentor, Professor Emeritus Gordhan Patel. Dr. Sisodia is currently the Thomas A. Reynolds Sr. Family Professor of Neurobiology at the University of Chicago. 

The 2022 Sisodia-Patel Prize for Outstanding Research by an Undergraduate in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology will this year be shared by two students:

Elisabeth A. Lampros, B.S. in BMB; Minor in Public Health. Liza will take a gap year to apply to Medical School. Her Research Mentor was Dr. Adam Barb, who is shown on the left presenting the prize to Ms. Lampros.

Alexandria M. Jefferson, B.S. in BMB. Ms. Jefferson conducted her research with Dr. David Forgacs in the laboratory of Dr. Ted Ross, and Dr. Forgacs is shown presenting the prize on the right. Alexandria will be attending graduate school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this coming fall.
