March 1, 2012

Wayne Frasch received the Faculty Achievement Research Award at the Feb. 29 annual Founders' Day awards dinner. Frasch is being honored for his research, which resides at the interface between basic research and innovative mission-driven investigation into the inner workings of cells, molecules and DNA.

Frasch has published more than 70 papers and has obtained five patents related to his work, with another five patents pending.

"Good science is a lot like art," Frasch says. "Publishing a paper that is a really good, insightful paper that leads to new knowledge is much like a work of art."
