The WVU Cancer Institute Employee Recognition Awards Committee is now accepting nominations for its annual Employee Recognition Awards Program.
If you would like to nominate and recognize excellence amongst our faculty, members, staff, employees and Cancer Service Line staff members who devote their professional lives to cancer prevention, care or research in any and all capacities, please use this easy online nomination form. It has been revised to make it easier to nominate and recognize excellence in our colleagues.
This year a new Team award has been created to recognize a team of 3 or more individuals who demonstrate our values of collaboration, innovation, accountability and service to others.
Nomination applications must be submitted by July 15, 2018. The review committee will be comprised of last year’s awardees. Award recipients will be notified in late early summer, 2018. The celebration honoring the recipients will be held during a Tea Time in the Cancer Institute.
Awards will be given in the following categories of excellence in any of our guiding principles:
The 17th annual West Virginia Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol will be held in the West Virginia Capitol Rotunda Friday, February 7, 2020 beginning at 8:30 am. The format for the 2020 Research Day will be a poster session featuring research and creative works conducted by undergraduate students under the guidance of faculty mentors from colleges and universities across the state. The purpose of this event is to familiarize state legislators with some of the research and creative activities involving undergraduate students that occur on campuses across the state and the educational impact of those activities. We encourage undergraduates to apply/submit abstracts (due by midnight Nov. 1, 2019) to present their work. The event will showcase posters in a wide range of subjects, including the sciences, arts, social sciences, and humanities.
The Research Induction Ceremony will be October 18, 2019, 4:00 PM in Okey Patteson Auditorium. All are welcome to attend.
WVU School of Public Health Department of Epidemiology Professor and WVU Cancer Institute Research Programs Member Sarah Knox has been invited to speak at the Biomedicine and Holistic Medicine in Cooperation Conference.
