Annual Awards Ceremony
Each year a committee comprised of faculty, staff, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows reviews a large and highly competitive pool of nominees for the various award categories. Each student and postdoc awardee has their name engraved on a plaque that is housed in our office and may receive a cash prize in addition to the award trophy.
Complete award descriptions and nomination requirements can be found in the 2022 GPILS/OPS Awards Descriptions.
The 2022 GPILS/OPS Awards Program can be found here.
This event is generously funded by the Graduate School, Dental School, and School of Medicine.
