o Mark Duggan , professor of business and public policy in the Wharton School, who studies the effect of government expenditure programs, such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, on the behavior of individuals and firms.
o John Hogenesch , associate professor of pharmacology in the Perelman School of Medicine, who studies the mammalian circadian clock, using both genomic and computational tools.
o Benjamin Horton , associate professor of earth and environmental science in the School of Arts and Sciences, who studies the external and internal mechanisms of sea-level change, especially its relationship to climate change.
o Marisa Kozlowski , professor of chemistry in the School of Arts and Sciences, who studies the design of new methods and catalysts for organic synthesis, including both novel computational tools and traditional methods of screening and development.
o Jennifer Lukes , associate professor of mechanical engineering and applied mechanics in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, who studies the thermal transport phenomena that emerge in nanostructures and nanostructured materials.
o Beth Winkelstein , professor of bioengineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, who studies the mechanisms of injury that produce whiplash and sports-related and other painful injuries.
