The 2014 Guthrie Prize Winners

Adair Cardon and Alex M. Kale are the winners of the 2014 Guthrie Prize.

Adair's paper, "Copy Number Variants, Gender, and Perinatal Complications within Autism Spectrum Disorder," was sponsored by Raphael Bernier, Ph.D., and won in the Best Empirical Paper category.  Alex's paper, "Evaluating the Empirical Basis for Claims that Trichromacy in Primates is Adaptive," was sponsored by Steven Buck, Ph.D., and won in the Best Literature Review or Conceptual Paper category. 

Named for the late UW Psychology professor Edwin R. Guthrie, the Guthrie Prize is a high honor for any undergraduate student.  The prize was established to encourage excellent writing about psychology that is broad in scope and accessible to the non-specialist.

Congratulations to Adair and Alex!
