Congratulations to Senior Sponsored Research Administrator Kathy Zuccala for being designated a recipient of the 2015 Dean's Distinction award! Nominated not only for her service as interim manager of sponsored research for the past few months and for providing expert testimony during labor arbitration hearings, Kathy has gone beyond the call of duty in helping to plan and implement Harvard's first Energy Frontier Research Center. She will be honored at a ceremony in University Hall later in the spring.
