The UNMC Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research is seeking nominations for the Community Service to Research Award.

The award honors community members, health practitioners, public leaders or community groups who have demonstrated a record of service to UNMC’s research mission. That might be a volunteer, a local group of individuals or anyone a UNMC faculty member believes is deserving of recognition.

The characteristics and accomplishments for nominated individuals are:

  • Service on UNMC committees that involve research, such as the Institutional Review Board.
  • A record of providing direct and indirect support for UNMC research projects, such as acting as a funding partner on match grants or providing resources for investigator research.
  • Collaboration with UNMC investigators on research-based solutions to population health problems.

The guidelines for nomination are:

  • Nominees cannot be employed by UNMC or the University of Nebraska.
  • The nominator must be a UNMC faculty member.
  • Letters of support can come from UNMC faculty, alumni or students.

The award will be presented at the annual distinguished scientist award ceremony.

Please submit nominations for consideration on or before Dec. 6 by completing the official nomination form. Nominations and questions should be emailed to James Geiger in the vice chancellor for research office.
