2023 MICHR Distinguished Clinical and Translational Research Mentor Award recognizes contributions to the research environment at U-M
Three IHPI members who contribute enormously to the research environment at U-M have been honored along with four other U-M faculty with the 2023 MICHR Distinguished Clinical and Translational Research Mentor Award.
Out of a competitive field of remarkable and generous research leaders, the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) has selected individuals who meet the highest standard for clinical and translational research mentorship.
The pool of nominees represented a diverse group of U-M units, including Engineering, the Institute for Survey Research, Literature, Science & the Arts, Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, and U-M Flint.
The 12th annual awardees will be honored at a ceremony later this fall during the 2023 Mentoring Forum.
The award was established in 2012 to recognize faculty who foster the intellectual, creative, scholarly and professional growth of their students, fellows and trainees in the areas of clinical and translational health and research.
