Titled “Celebrating Excellence,” the 2018 event at Hancher brought together faculty, staff and students involved in research and scholarship as well as its translation into medical devices, startup companies and other commercial ventures.

 

John Keller, interim Vice President for Research and Economic Development and dean of the Graduate College, said that because of the work being done by the people being recognized Tuesday night, “lives are being saved, prolonged, and improved, and our ideas about the vast universe we inhabit, and the innermost workings of the human body, are growing by leaps and bounds.”

 

Keller, who presented the awards along with interim Provost Sue Curry, said that the attendees’ work is being done during challenging times for research, scholarship and for higher education.

 

I want to be the first tonight to thank you for the great energy, dedication, and focus you bring to campus each day,” Keller said. “And to encourage you to keep fighting the good fight. The university, and quite literally the world, depend upon it.”
