Minnesota Grad wins Nathan Reingold Prize

Congratulations to Hyung Wook Park, who was awarded the 2007 Nathan Reingold Prize for "'The Thin Rats Bury the Fat Rats': Animal Husbandry, Caloric Restriction, and the Making of a Cross-Disciplinary Research Project."  He is featured in the current issue of the History of Science Society newsletter.  The Nathan Reingold Prize (formerly known as the Ida & Henry Schuman Prize) is awarded each year to the best graduate student essay on the history of science and its cultural influences.  Park is the first graduate student from Minnesota to be awarded this prize in the over 50 years of the competition's existence.  Let's hope that he is starting a trend!
