Patricia Yee, an MD/PhD medical scientist training program student, was presented with an Alumni Association Dissertation Award during the 2021 Graduate Student Awards Recognition Ceremony on April 2. This award recognizes outstanding achievement in scholarship and professional accomplishment. Penn State Alumni Association provides support for the award through an endowment.

Angela Snyder, a neuroscience doctoral candidate, was named 2021 recipient of the Graduate Student Excellence in Mentoring Award.
