Faculty Research Time Awards Announced

October 22, 2019

We are very excited to announce the results of the Research Time Award for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Five faculty submitted applications, and three were awarded research time: Dr. Erikka Washington, Dr. Olga Pawelek, and Dr. Linden Lee. The winners were selected by the committee based on the assessments and scores from five reviewers—three internal and two external reviewers—using the NIH grant review format. The awarded research days for the three winners will begin in October, 2019 for a total of 8 months.

Six months after starting the research project, a midterm progress report is expected, and a final meeting will be held following the study. We hope this will be just one of many initiatives instituted by our department to promote clinical research among our junior and mid-career faculty.

Our sincere hope is to encourage additional faculty to engage in scholarly and research activity in the future.

Congratulations to Drs. Washington, Pawelek, and Lee!
