Join us in congratulating Dr. Nancy Hopkins on receiving the EMD Millipore Alice C. Evans Award for Leadership in Clinical Microbiology. The award is given in honor of Alice C. Evans, the first woman elected ASM President, in 1928. The award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions toward the advancement of women in microbiology. Dr. Hopkins is best known for her work on viral replication and RNA viruses, which led to the development of a system for insertional mutation in zebrafish.
For this work, which dramatically changed our understanding of genetic regulation in vertebrates, Dr. Hopkins was elected to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Institute of Medicine and the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Hopkins is also known for launching a national debate on gender equality in the sciences, particularly on the status of women faculty in universities throughout the United States.
