The UF College of Medicine recently announced five faculty members that have been appointed to UF Research Foundation (UFRF) Professorships for 2017. These awards, given to tenured faculty who have a distinguished record of research, aim to recognize professors for their recent contributions and provide incentives for continued excellence in research.
The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is pleased to congratulate Dr. Suming Huang, Professor, in receiving this distinguished honor!
The primary selection criteria includes the professor’s performance in the past five years and evidence of a strong research agenda that is likely to lead to continuing distinction in the professor’s field.
At the conclusion of the three-year UFRF Professorship term, the recipients will provide a short report to the Vice President for Research reviewing their accomplishments during the period they held the award and their expectations for the future.
