Fred Rieke has been chosen as the recipient of the 2013 Marsha L. Landolt Distinguished Graduate Mentor Award, which “recognizes a faculty member who excels at the intense, one-on-one mentoring that is the hallmark of graduate study”. One university-wide award is made every year. Fred is the first faculty member in the Health Sciences to win this award.
Current and former graduate students and postdoctoral fellows nominate candidates for the Landolt Award. Their recommendations weigh heavily in the determination of the winner. The award will be presented at the Awards of Excellence ceremony on Thursday, June 13.
