Trustee Marv Caruthers P'02 visited campus in February 2016 to celebrate the appointment of Siddarth Ramakrishnan as the Jennie M. Caruthers Chair in Neuroscience. Festivities included meeting with faculty and students, a tour of the lab, and a student-led neuroscience symposium. Students presented their summer research projects and had the opportunity to share the impact of the neuroscience program at Puget Sound.

“We are truly delighted to establish this new chair in biophysics at Puget Sound,” McCormick said. “Students entering the sciences are facing a rapidly changing environment that demands not only the precise skills and know-how of a discipline, but the ability to work with scientists from related fields. The addition of a faculty position in biophysics will strengthen even further the university’s vibrant offerings in the sciences.”
