Joe Felsenstein, Professor Emeritus of Genome Sciences and of Biology at the University of Washington, was recently announced one of three winners of the National Center for Science Education's Friend of Darwin award for 2020.

"The Friends of Darwin for 2020 have made profound contributions to the cause of evolution education and to NCSE in a variety of ways," commented NCSE's executive director Ann Reid. "Joe Felsenstein is a towering figure in phylogenetic inference and theoretical population genetics, two scientific areas central to the study of evolution."
The Friend of Darwin awards are presented annually to a select few whose efforts to support NCSE and advance its goal of defending the teaching of evolution and climate science have been truly outstanding.
Congratulations, Joe!
