Congratulations to MCB Associate Professor Hillel Adesnik, and MCB Assistant Professors Gloria Brar and Stephen Brohawn on being named 2019 Rose Hills Innovators! 

The program, launched in 2014 and established with generous support from The Rose Hills Foundation, supports distinguished early-career faculty in the STEM fields. The program focuses efforts on strengthening the endeavors of UC Berkeley researchers by providing seed support for projects with exceptionally high scientific promise and the potential to generate significant follow-on funding.

Adesnik, Brar, and Brohawn will join former Rose Hills Innovators MCB Associate Professor Polina Lishko (2017) and MCB Assistant Professor Nicholas Ingolia (2014).

The Foundation also supports UC Berkeley graduate students and undergraduates in the STEM disciplines as well as the SURF/Rose Hills summer undergraduate research fellowship.
