David N. Schramm, 1945-1997
One of the world's leading astrophysicists would have celebrated his 60th birthday this year. At the time of his death, David N. Schramm was Vice President for Research and the Louis Block Distinguished Service Professor in the Physical Sciences at The University of Chicago.
Schramm's legacy includes the flourishing field of research at the intersection of particle physics and cosmology that he pioneered; the many students, postdocs, and young faculty that he mentored; and the world leading cosmology groups at Chicago and Fermilab that he helped build. This remarkable legacy will be celebrated on December 9th at the New Views of the Universe Symposium and at this dinner.
The David N. Schramm Fellowship Fund has been established to honor this extraordinary man and the legacy he left at Chicago and elsewhere. Fellowships will be awarded to outstanding students who show Schramm's spirit of trailblazing and innovation in their research.
