The Academy for Excellence in Health Science Research serves as the highest recognition of excellence in health science research by a full time faculty member at the University of Minnesota. Those selected will have demonstrated excellence in research as measured by impact in basic and/or applied health science at the lab, clinic, school, community, and/or population level. Impact may be measured by contributions to one particular problem or a sustained record of excellence in many problems. All members of the Academy will also have demonstrated the highest level of ethics and professionalism during their career.

The current members of the Academy for Excellence in Research, Associate Deans of Research in the six health science schools, and other reviewers selected by the Associate Vice President for Research will serve as the review committee and will review and evaluate materials for each nominee. Based upon this review, the Associate Vice President for Research will forward the recommendations to the Vice President for Research, who will have final authority on election of new members.
It is our hope that an in person ceremony can be held early next year once the Sunrise Plan has been fully implemented and University of Minnesota leadership has approved a venue that will allow us to follow any recommended safety guidelines. Final details regarding the awards ceremony will be announced as soon as they are available.
