As always, quite a few scientific accolades have poured in for UChicago faculty this year. But one group of award winners has something in common:

Besides needing to build some new shelves for the extra hardware, they’re all members of the Committee on Evolutionary Biology at the University of Chicago.

The CEB is a unique interdepartmental graduate student training program dedicated to the study of evolutionary biology. Faculty and students in the program engage in interdisciplinary studies that range from single generations to the entire history of life, from a molecular to a global scale. With a geologist, microbiologist, computational biologist and paleontologist raking in the honors, we can’t think of a better way to show off the diversity and vitality of researchers in the CEB. Congratulations!
