“We are so happy for our son,” said Lily Gao of Daniel Chu, recipient of the 2015 Thomas More Storke Award. “I am so proud of him.”
Graduating with highest honors, Chu received his a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences. His next stop will be a fellowship at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. His long-term goal: a medical degree and a Ph.D.
“It is far beyond our expectations,” said Chu’s father Genjian Gao. “It’s all because UCSB gave him the resources to grow as an individual and become a great student.”
