The AHC Academy for Excellence in Health Research (the Academy) is intended to serve as the highest recognition of excellence in research by AHC faculty. Those selected have enhanced the research identity of the University of Minnesota through sustained, nationally and internationally-recognized biomedical/health-related research in their field. Initiated in 2003 and continuing annually, the Academy has 33 inductees. Their identities and a description of their research accomplishments can be found at http://z.umn.edu/dj5.
Faculty members can be nominated for election to the Academy each year. They receive a recurring annual augmentation of $10,000 for five consecutive years (that may be used as an augmentation to their salary or to support their research), and permanent recognition in the Academy.
Questions about this recognition opportunity can be sent to Tucker W. LeBien (lebie001).
