We honor the two 2018 awardees for Excellence in Biological Sciences

Logan Robert Hurst is in Rutilio "Rudy" A Fratti's lab (Department of Biochemistry and Center of Biophysics & Quantitative Biology, UIUC;; Logan is investigating how sphingolipids control the localization of small GTPases at the site of fusion between yeast vacuoles.

Daniel Bruce Raudabaugh is in Andrew Miller's lab (Prairie Research Institute, Illinois Natural History Survey, and Department of Plant Biology, UIUC;; Daniel is investigating the distribution and functional roles of detritus inhabiting higher fungi across contrasting aquatic environments.
