Andrew Holland, Ph.D. receives President’s Frontier Award

In a surprise virtual presentation last week, Holland received the $250,000 President’s Frontier Award in recognition of the outstanding promise of his work. The meeting, arranged under the guise of a final interview between Holland, JHU President Ronald J. Daniels, and Provost Sunil Kumar, was “Zoom bombed” by proud members of Holland’s lab, his colleagues, and members of Holland’s family—including his wife and children and his parents, who called in from their home in the United Kingdom to share the moment with their son.

He is the seventh Johns Hopkins faculty member to win the award, which celebrates individuals who are breaking new ground and are poised to become leaders in their field. The award affords researchers the freedoms to pursue new lines of research, expand their laboratories, and support their lab members.
