NIH rankings were recently released and the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology has taken a commanding FIRST PLACE national ranking!
Achieving a #1 ranking in a hyper-competitive discipline is definitely a team effort. In basketball, we focus on celebrating the players and coaching staff. But strong programs are bolstered by the countless efforts of so many; athletic trainers, academic coaches, players’ families, sports psychologists, travel coordinators, financial & marketing staff, stadium management & staff, university leaders, the pep band & cheering squads and of course the fans! Likewise, our CBP community is also a team effort in which every single person contributes in important ways.
So, please take a few moments to do the following:
- Congratulate YOURSELF, for your hard work, your engagement in excellence and your community contributions!
- Recognize and acknowledge the countless teammates around you, whose efforts are also contributing to our overall success.
- Spread the news, be proud and shout it loud: We’re Number 1!
