2021 Virtual Tribute Luncheon – Monday, April 26 at noon

The 2021 Tribute luncheon is going virtual! After cancelling our luncheon in 2020 due to the pandemic, we will (finally) be honoring Bob and Helen Bartee. We will also be recognizing the critical work of Dr. Donald Coulter with the Maurer Award. The event will be capped off with a special keynote speaker, Mary Woolley, Research!America President.

Please join us to honor these important awardees and support health science research and career pathways.
