USUHS Research Award – Deadline Extended

Posted on Updated on

(Hint…”deadline extended” often means competition is not what they were hoping, so you may want to send your stuff in.)

Dear Program Leaders and Chairs, 

Please encourage your faculty to self nominate their research publication for the “Henry C. Wu, James J. Leonard, & Llewellyn J. Legters Awards for Excellence in Research”.

The selected work will be presented as a seminar and showcase the outstanding research work being done at USUHS. I am confident the research work will be very inspiring to all of us at USUHS.

The deadline is extended until Aug 30th. 

Let’s take part in celebrating our research!

Best regards,

Geeta Upadhyay
