AAAS Women in Science grant to CAS physics prof

Elizabeth Simmons, a CAS associate professor of physics, who is working to trace the origins of mass and researching theories to explain what created the mass of electons, quarks, and other particles, received a grant from the American Association for the Advancement of Science Women in International Science Collaboration program. The WICS program, which was launched in 2001, is a partnership between AAAS and the National Science Foundation. It seeks to increase the participation of U.S. women in international science research by awarding travel grants to U.S. scientists to plan and design new research projects with colleagues around the world. Simmons, who spent a week at Japan’s Kyoto University discussing theory of mass origins with two fellow particle physicists, is one of 44 researchers to receive the WISC grant in the second round of awards given this year.
