The Kalpana Chawla Award recognizes alumni who have made exceptional contributions to their field within 10 years of graduation. This award was named to honor the UC-Boulder alumna who died aboard the Columbia space shuttle on February 1, 2003. The award recognizes Stuart's work using large-scale computational approaches to explore how genes function and produce orchestrated cellular responses.

Stuart received a double degree (B.S./B.A.) from UC-Boulder in computer science and molecular, cell, and developmental biology and went on to earn a Ph.D. from Stanford University. He joined the UCSC faculty in 2003. He recently received an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship.
