Lionel Jin awarded Russell Henry Chittenden Prize

Lionel Jin was awarded Yale’s Hart Lyman Prize last year, as the Junior with the best record of intellectual and social accomplishment. He was named to Phi Beta Kappa for his junior year, and he graduates summa cum laude with a joint master's degree in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, and with distinction in both the intensive track of MCDB, and in Computer Science.

Lionel was recently selected as a Schwarzman Scholar, and after graduation he plans to work in the technology industry and build products “that will transform the way we live.”

In recognition of his extraordinary record and his promise of future success, Yale College proudly confers the Russell Henry Chittenden Prize this year upon Lionel Jin.
