The annual Innovation Awards event at Penn State College of Medicine recognizes faculty, staff, postdocs and students in the innovator community. Individuals are recognized for moving their innovations forward by executing a licensing agreement, earning a patent or starting a company based on Penn State technology during the preceding year. This year’s Innovation Awards Ceremony will be Oct. 27, 2016.
The culmination of the Innovation Awards ceremony is the announcement of the Innovator of the Year Award. This prestigious award is given to a faculty member who has been recognized by peers for a demonstrated track record of innovation; developing new technologies, processes or services; taking an entrepreneurial approach to translational research; and as a collaborator and active participant in the innovation community.
Nominations are now being accepted in the categories of Innovator of the Year; Investigator to Watch; and Student Award for Excellence in Innovation. After the close of nominations, a review committee established by the Vice Dean for Research and Graduate Studies will review each submission and make a recommendation. One individual will be selected for each honor. Nomination forms are available on the College of Medicine Infonet (internal users only).
