For their visionary interdisciplinary research on the altitudes where people live, and their work's wide-ranging impacts on society, two NSF-funded scientists--mathematical biologists Joel Cohen and geologist Christopher Small--have been selected as the third winners of the 2015 Golden Goose Award. The award honors researchers whose federally funded work may have seemed odd or obscure when it was first conducted but has resulted in significant benefits to society.Full Story
