Bill Sykes Scholarship in Pathobiology and Translational Science
Nobuyo N. Maeda, Ph.D.
Robert H. Wagner Distinguished Professor of Pathology
and Laboratory Medicine
Oliver Smithies, D.Phil.
Weatherspoon Eminent Distinguished Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
The Bill Sykes Scholars Program in Pathobiology and Translational Science was established by Dr. Nobuyo Maeda and Dr. Oliver Smithies in memory of Dr. Smithies parents to support the training of exceptional graduate students in Pathobiology and Translational Science during their first year. Dr. Smithies’ Father’s name was Bill and his Mother’s maiden name was Sykes. The funds to support this scholarship are derived from several patents that are held by Drs. Maeda and Smithies. These patents are related to technology for genetically manipulating mice, for which Dr. Smithies was awarded the 2007 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. All applicants to the Pathobiology and Translational Science Ph.D. program will be considered for this distinction.
