Dan Levy was recognized for his research in the UW Department of Molecular Biology.

Professor Scott Miller and Assistant Professor Dan Levy won outstanding research and early career research awards from the Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station. Miller is in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management, and Levy is in the Department of Molecular Biology.

Miller joined UW in 2002 as an assistant professor in the then-Department of Renewable Resources. His research focus is spatial hydrology, and his lab focuses on the use of innovative field and modeling techniques to better understand the fate and transport of water, and how humans change hydrologic response. He has worked around the world on topics ranging from deforestation to risk assessment, but more recently has focused his research on Wyoming-related issues.

Levy joined UW in 2011 after working as a postdoctoral fellow in molecular and cell biology at the University of California-Berkeley. His lab’s goal is to reveal nuclear size control mechanisms to understand how nuclear size affects cell and nuclear function, and sub-nuclear organization. His previous research and training as a mechanistic biochemist, investigating size control of intracellular structures and developing in vitro reconstitution systems, positioned him to solve problems relating to nuclear size regulation.

Also nominated for the early career research award were Melanie Murphy, assistant professor in the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management; and Andrew Kniss, associate professor, and Brian Mealor, assistant professor, both in the Department of Plant Sciences.
