American Physical Society to award Sanchez for biological physics research
Tim Sanchez Ph.D. ‘12 is being honored for his doctoral thesis.
Sanchez, who worked in Associate Professor of Physics Zvonimir Dogic’s lab and is a post-doctoral fellow, will receive the Division of Biological Physics of the American Physical Society’s Award for Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Research in Biological Physics. His thesis was on “Self-Organization in Active Cytoskeletal Mixtures: Cilia-like Beating of Microtubule Bundles and Spontaneous Bulk Mixing.”
He will receive a $1,500 prize, a certification citing his contribution, a $500 travel allowance and a registration-fee waiver for the society’s next meeting and an invitation to present a 30-minute talk based on his work.
"It's a great honor," Sanchez says of the award, adding that the invitation to present "is also an honor and a nice opportunity to speak and let people know who you are."
