Congratulations to Ian Williams for Receiving the Founder's Medal!
Each year during Commencement, Vanderbilt University recognizes one individual from each of its 10 schools with a Founder’s Medal. This year’s awardee from the Graduate School is Ian Williams from the lab of David Wasserman (Molecular Physiology and Biophysics, MPB). A California native, Williams has spent his years in the Wasserman laboratory studying vascular biology, and will continue to pursue his interests through a current postdoc at Stanford University. Congratulations for this phenomenal recognition, and good luck in your future endeavors!
