Each year, the IU School of Medicine awards two prestigious honors to outstanding researchers and educators.
Steven C. Beering Award for Advancement of Biomedical Science Recipients
Given out since 1984, this year marks the 28th anniversary of the Steven C. Beering Award for Advancement of Biomedical Science.Click below to see the list of Beering award recipients, four of whom went on to win the Nobel Prize.
Mark Brothers Award
Dr. and Mrs. Guey C. Mark created the endowed Mark Brothers Lectureship to recognize nationally and internationally renowned medical scientists of Asian descent. The Mark Brothers Lectureship was established in 1997 in honor of Dr. Mark’s brothers, who immigrated from Canton and settled in South Bend, Indiana, where they built a successful restaurant business.
Trustees Teaching Award
Each year the Indiana University Board of Trustees recognizes excellence in teaching through a program known as the Trustee Teaching Awards. Recipients of this prestigious award receive a $2500 bonus, have their names displayed on a plaque, and are recognized at the Medical School Commencement in May. We anticipate that approximately 48 outstanding IUSM teachers will receive the award this year.
Mentoring among faculty at IUSM is a crucial element in sustaining a vital faculty community, promoting faculty development, and increasing faculty retention. The creation of two annual “Excellence in Faculty Mentoring” awards at IUSM underscores the commitment to endorse mentoring within our faculty.
