Meet College of Sciences Alumnus Phillip L. Williams, Professor and Founding Dean, College of Public Health, University of Georgia
From Atlanta to Athens: Phillip L. Williams earned a Ph.D. in biology from Georgia Tech, and relied on that training to help him establish the College of Public Health at the University of Georgia.
A protein shaped like a "Y" makes scientists do a double-take and may change the way they think about a protein sometimes implicated in glaucoma. The Y is a centerpiece in myocilin, binding four other components nicknamed propellers together like balloons on strings. The Y may also make them stick to things instead of floating freely as was previously believed for years.
Meet College of Sciences Alumna Lynn A. Capadona, Chief, Science and Space Technology Systems Branch, NASA John Glenn Research Center
Lynn A. Capadona's mission at NASA? Keep astronauts safe in their spacecraft as the space agency considers possible future journeys to Mars. The problem-solving skills she gained while earning a Ph.D. in chemistry at Tech helped Capadona take on more responsibilities at NASA.
He earned his B.S. and M.S. in chemistry from Georgia Tech, and landed a good job with a major international company. But his time on campus – and his strong faith – also taught John F. Oswald how to take the right risks. That's how he ended up as a farmer of a fast-growing vineyard that's supplying grapes to Texas wineries.
