Galina Petukhova won the USUHS 2013 Henry Wu award for excellence in the basic sciences, which recognizes her recent work " PRDM9 directs genetic recombination away from functional genomic elements" published in Nature.

Markos Koutmos received the Scientist Development Grant from the American Heart Association (National Center) on "B12-dependent enzymes and B12-transport proteins in homocysteine metabolism".

Jun Zhang, Rongde Qiu in Xin Xiang's lab and their collaborators published in the Journal of Cell Biology (March 17, 2014) their finding of a protein that links dynein to early endosomes. The results are highlighted by JCB: http://jcb.rupress.org/content/204/6/859
