The spring 2010 winner of The Golden PIPETMAN Award is Geoffrey Hart. Hart received his Bachelor’s of Science in Biochemistry from Bates College in 2002. In 2006 he received a Graduate School Fellowship. He is currently working on his research thesis on T-cell development at the University of Minnesota.
The Golden PIPETMAN is an award given at the University of Minnesota to an outstanding microbiology, immunology and cancer biology (MICaB) graduate student each semester.
The student who receives this award shows great leadership skills and has contributed to the excellence of the MICaB program. The contribution can be in the form of publications, outside funding and service to the program.
The recipient of this award receives a golden PIPETMAN trophy given by the MICaB program, as well as PIPETMAN Starter kit that is donated by Gilson, Inc.
“The students do truly appreciate the kit and consider it an honor to receive the award,” Louise Shand, Program coordinator said.
Students are nominated for this award by fellow students or MICaB faculty. The recipient is chosen by the MICaB graduate committee members and past recipients of the Golden PIPETMAN award, who are still in the program. The recipient is announced at the MICaB student seminar series.
