UCLA neurobiologist Elissa Hallem has won a prestigious MacArthur fellowship for her work studying a topic you've almost definitely never considered unless you work in her lab: how worms smell stuff. Strange as it may sound, Hallem's work has the potential to reduce the devastating health effect of parasitic worms around the world -- and to improve our still-thin understanding of how all animals smell. Hallem and 22 other winners from the arts and sciences will each receive "genius grants" of $100,000 a year for five years.
