Joy Folkvord, Senior Professional Research Assistant in the Division of Infectious Diseases, has been awarded the Steven Fadul Award for 2012! This is awarded each year to an outstanding PRA within the School of Medicine.
Biomedical research increasingly relies on teamwork among students, postdocs, faculty, and PRAs and other members of our technical staff. Of these, it is the technical staff who, over a period of years, log the most time in the lab and acquire unique knowledge, insight, and wisdom. They become the foundation for an efficient, productive, and collegial research atmosphere. Their contributions, however, are not recognized to the extent that they deserve.
