HONORS AND AWARDS

  • Horizon Award

    2020, "The Horizon Award recognizes graduate students and recent graduate alumni whose research holds extremely high potential for making a significant contribution to the educational, economic, physical, social or cultural well-being of North Carolina citizens and beyond at some future time. Horizon Awards recognize graduate student research of a more theoretical and basic nature that holds high probability of solving a significant problem or issue in North Carolina and beyond. Breakthrough theoretical discoveries that require more follow-up research to achieve final results or biomedical discoveries that require years of clinical testing before they can be utilized are examples of these highly significant, but longer term, types of research projects".
