Recognition for Dartmouth faculty, staff, and students. Did you or a colleague recently receive an award or honor? Click here to tell us about it. 

Samuel Bakhoum 
Samuel Bakhoum, a fourth-year M.D.-Ph.D. student, will receive the Norton B. Gilula Award from the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB). The award recognizes the research of one undergraduate or graduate student per year and provides funding for the recipient to attend the ASCB's annual meeting. Bakhoum was selected for his project, "Mechanisms of Chromosome Segregation Fidelity in Human Cells," which investigates the mechanisms that normal cells use to ensure accurate chromosome segregation at every cell cycle. "I would not have won this award without the support of my advisor, Professor of Biochemistry Duane Compton, who helped me define how to ask the truly exciting and important questions while maintaining a focused and rigorous approach," says Bakhoum.


Matthew H. Davis

Matthew H. Davis has received a Switzer Environmental Fellowship from the Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation-one of the most prestigious awards for early-career environmental leaders. Davis is pursuing a Master of Public Health at the Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, where he will investigate the interface between human health and environmental quality. Before enrolling at Dartmouth, Davis was the organizational development regional director for Environment America and U.S. PIRG. As part of that work, he wrote and managed grants for more than $400,000 annually to fund work in various states, and coauthored numerous policy reports on environmental issues.
