Dr. Thomas E. Curry, Jr. of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology was honored along with four other recipients at an awards ceremony during the University of Kentucky Center for Clinical and Translational Science's 9th Annual CCTS Spring Conference on Thursday, March 27. The CCTS created the mentor awards as a mechanism to acknowledge the integral role that faculty serve as mentors and an opportunity for junior researchers to recognize the valuable support they receive. Two to five mentor awards are given at each annual conference, and 28 awards have been presented since the program began in 2007.These recipients received recognition for their outstanding work in helping to train young scientists.
Dr. Curry has been a strong mentor and guide to junior faculty, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and research lab staff working to advance them in their fields towards independent research. As the Principal Investigator of the Kentucky BIRCWH Program Dr. Curry is instrumental in helping junior investigators develop their research initiatives and establish themselves as researchers in women's health.
Congratulations Dr. Curry on being an outstanding researcher and mentor!
