BC Student Wins Dissertation Award

For the second year in a row, an alumna of Boston College's graduate program in biology has been honored by the Northeastern Association of Graduate Schools for outstanding research writing.

Lori Neely PhD '01 has won the association's Dissertation Award, to be presented along with a $1,000 prize at a three-day conference on Long Island that begins today.

Neely's award-winning doctoral dissertation, "Indentification and Characterization of Two Key Cis-Acting Elements in the S. pombe fbpl Promoter," was supervised by Assoc. Prof. Charles Hoffman (Biology).

Michaela Raines '99 won a similar award last year for her master's thesis, supervised by Prof. Thomas Seyfried (Biology).

The association annually gives prizes for the best dissertation and the best master's thesis produced by students of member graduate schools.
