Team Science Award Applications Due Sept. 19

The College of Medicine’s Office of Research has created research awards to recognize faculty excellence across a broad spectrum of research activities. These awards are not intended to duplicate existing university-wide awards, but focus on the unique mission of the College of Medicine.

The Team Science Award will recognize a team of College of Medicine faculty members who have successfully created and sustained a multidisciplinary research team that significantly contributes to the mission of the college. A team must consist of at least four full-time faculty members that each play a significant and interdisciplinary role in the team. While a team will typically have members from the affiliated institutions (e.g. Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Cincinnati Department of Veterans Affairs Hospital), the team should be led by a full-time College of Medicine faculty member, or the majority of the members must be College of Medicine faculty.

The team will receive $5,000, recognition at the annual Research Recognition Awards Program and recognition in the College of Medicine Annual Research Report. 

Applications must be submitted electronically through the submission portal by 5 p.m. Sept.19, 2016. Awards will be announced by Oct.31, 2016.

If you have any questions, please email Brieanne Sheehan or call 558-7564.
