Research Professional Award


Nominations: Aug. 31, 2018 (before midnight)

Many of our UC College of Medicine staff serve our research mission in a way that vastly transforms productivity and drives the research enterprise.  They do so by contributing to publications and grant proposals; acquiring and managing clinical trials; designing and executing experiments; recruiting, educating, and protecting clinical research participants; analyzing data; maintaining regulatory compliance; engaging the community in the research enterprise; and mentoring future researchers. They often serve with little recognition for the time and expertise they commit to improving the quality and rigor of laboratory and clinical research. To recognize this service to our research mission, the CoM Office of Research is soliciting nominations for a UC College of Medicine Research Professional Award. The award will be presented to a laboratory or clinical research staff employee who in the opinion of the research leadership shows an outstanding commitment to advancing the research mission of the College of Medicine. The recipient of this award will be recognized at the College of Medicine Research Recognition Awards Ceremony and honored with an award of $300 and a plaque.
