Nominations Due for Exceptional Trainees

2022 Exceptional Trainee Awards

Call for Nominations

Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at the Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI) have established a reputation for excellence in and out of the lab.  To honor these exceptional trainees, HCRI will be presenting three awards at our annual Cancer Research Day on March 14, 2022.  One award will be given in each of the three following categories:

  • Exceptional Community Service: Awarded to the trainee who best engages our partners to advance cancer awareness and education in our community.
  • Exceptional Patient Advocacy: Awarded to the trainee who has made a significant effort to support cancer patients.
  • Exceptional Team Science: Awarded to the trainee who best exemplifies HCRI's foundation in interdisciplinary research through his or her commitment to collaboration.

Eligibility: Any graduate student or postdoctoral fellow affiliated with HCRI is eligible to receive the awards. Any member of HCRI may nominate a graduate student or postdoc for one of these awards. It is our hope that students, postdocs, faculty, and staff will participate in the nomination process. We encourage every member to take a few moments to consider whom he or she feels would be an appropriate awardee.
