Please join me in congratulating Alex Kyranos, a graduate student in the Hai Lab, for being a recipient of AHEPA's 2023 Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship, in support of her research on LadA, a two-component flavindependent monooxygenase!

The purpose of the Constantine and Patricia Mavroyannis Scholarship is to recognize the importance of education – specifically, to reward and encourage educational achievement by Hellenes in the fields of physics and chemistry and thereby support Hellenic contribution to the global scientific community. The scholarship honors the life and accomplishments of Dr. Constantine Mavroyannis and his wife Patricia. Dr. Constantine Mavroyannis, an immigrant from Greece, achieved the seemingly unachievable – earning postdoctoral fellowships to complete PhDs from both McGill University and Oxford University – each in less than two years. He then became a career theoretical physicist at the National Research Council of Canada, publishing 140 scientific papers and teaching post-graduate PhD students from around the globe, continuing post retirement as a Physicist Emeritus at NRC’s Steacie Institute for Molecular Sciences.
