Paul Barber, BU biologist, receives Presidential Early Career Award for research endeavors

(Boston) -- Today Boston University's Paul Barber will be honored as one of this nation's most promising young researchers. One of 20 National Science Foundation (NSF)-sponsored researchers to be named for a 2004 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) honor, Barber is an assistant professor of biology in Boston University's Marine Biology Program, in Woods Hole, Mass.

In addition to the 20 NSF-sponsored young researchers, the PECASE ceremony will recognize 38 other young researchers whose work is sponsored by eight federal departments or agencies. The 58 PECASE recipients will receive their awards from John Marburger III, science advisor to the president and director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, in a 4 p.m. ceremony in the Cash Room of the Department of Treasury.

In his announcement letter to Barber, Marburger noted that PECASE recipients were selected on the basis of a "combination of innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology and community service demonstrated through scientific leadership and community outreach."

Barber's work exemplifies the letter and spirit of this criterion. An evolutionary and conservation biologist, Barber combines information from physical oceanography, evolutionary genetics, and geography to understand why the tropical seas of Indonesia show the highest biodiversity of any of the world's oceans and to use this information to help guide conservation science and policy in this imperiled marine environment. This interdisciplinary approach is carried through to the academic courses he creates for students investigating the evolutionary differences of creatures found within and among the seas. Barber also is instrumental in cultivating diverse human perspectives through his Diversity Project, an initiative that brings U.S. undergraduates, particularly individuals from populations currently underrepresented in science, together with scientist
