Call for Nominations

Frank J. Toth Research Award FY 2019

Deadline for Nominations & Support Letters:  Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 4:30 p.m.

This date and time are FIRM. Late nominations/support letters will not be accepted.

This award was established to honor the memory of Frank J. Toth, who worked for many years as a chemist for the federal Environmental Protection Agency.  His work and life in support of health-related science and research inspired this recognition of the contributions of those personnel (non-faculty) whose work supports the research mission of SIU School of Medicine.

The Research Funding Allocation Committee (RFAC) invites letters of nomination and support from supervisors and co-workers of SIU School of Medicine research support personnel who do not hold a faculty rank or title.  Trainees (students, residents, and clinical or postdoctoral fellows), and past recipients are not eligible. This award will consist of a plaque and a monetary travel award to assist the recipient in attending a professional meeting/conference, continuing education event or in receiving other training related to their job responsibilities as approved by the award recipient’s supervisor. The recipient will be recognized at the 2019 Employee Recognition Luncheon and will have one year to use the award funds.

Nomination and support letters should be sent to Kristi Katcher, Office of Associate Dean for Research, 801 N. Rutledge, Room 2073, P.O. Box 19616, Springfield, Illinois 62794-9616 (MC-9616).
