Call for Mentor Nominations
Deadline: Friday, Feb. 17, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. 

Each year, the CCTS invites nominations for Mentor Awards to recognize outstanding mentors who make impactful contributions to their mentees’ success in clinical and translational science. Mentorship can be a defining variable in someone’s training and career, but often goes under-recognized.

Only UK faculty members are eligible for this award.

Mentor Awards will be presented during the Awards Ceremony on Monday, March 27, 2023. The ceremony will be held at the Gatton Student Center, Worsham Cinema from 11:45am to 1:00pm, 160 Avenue of Champions.
