This year, the award went to Kremer and to David Lin '14 (. in biology) for his study of the public health problem of antibiotic-resistant infections.

With the approval of your committee chair, you enroll in AMST 598 in your final semester of coursework You begin by developing an outline or summary of your topic and how you plan to approach your study and then meeting with your committee for their response and advisement regarding your research and writing plan. Once you have completed your research, you submit drafts of each chapter to your committee chair for their review and circulation to the other two members. Chapters are then revised in response to faculty critique and formatted to University guidelines for theses (the Grad Studies office publishes these guidelines).
