Professor Janet Conrad of physics and Associate Professor Patrick Doyle of chemical engineering are among the 180 artists, scientists and scholars awarded fellowships by the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation.

The foundation selects fellows on the basis of "stellar achievement and exceptional promise for continued accomplishment." The latest fellows, announced this week, come from a field of almost 3,000 applicants and range in age from 29 to 70.

Conrad will use her fellowship to work on a new detector for large liquid argon experiments at MIT and Fermilab in Batavia, Ill., while Doyle will work on the development of soft functional microparticles.

Each fellow receives a grant adjusted to his or her needs, taking into consideration other resources and the purpose and scope of his or her plans.
