Caltech alumnus Jonathan Tsai (BS '10) has been awarded a 2014 Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans. At Caltech, Tsai worked in the laboratory of David Baltimore, Robert Andrews Millikan Professor of Biology, where he developed and patented a technology to isolate T-cell receptor genes from single tumor infiltrating cells, creating new proteins able to kill melanomas.
 
The Soros grant, given annually to the most accomplished and promising immigrants and children of immigrants in American graduate education, provides each recipient with tuition and stipend assistance of up to $90,000. This year's group of 30 winners was selected from more than 1,200 applicants.
