Gould honored by American Scientist

Fred Gould

Dr. Fred Gould, William Neal Reynolds Professor of Entomology in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, has been awarded the first George Bugliarello Prize for writing from Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society, and its magazine American Scientist. Gould and his co-authors, Kristian Magori and Yunxin Huang, received the award for their article “Genetic Strategies for Controlling Mosquito-Borne Diseases,” published in the magazine’s May-June 2006 issue. The prize was presented in November during the 2007 Sigma Xi annual meeting and student research conference in Orlando, Fla.

Established in 2006, the George Bugliarello Prize recognizes a superior interdisciplinary essay, review or analytical article published in American Scientist. It is named for Bugliarello, president-emeritus of Polytechnic University in New York, former president of Sigma Xi and a member of the National Academy of Engineering.

Gould’s article was chosen from among all articles published in American Scientist from 2005 through mid-2007.
