The UW Division of Dermatology is excited to announce Cory Simpson, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor and Principal Investigator for the Simpson Lab, has been selected to receive a 2022 Outstanding Research Mentor Award from the UW School of Medicine.
Earlier this year, medical students from across the WWAMI region were invited to nominate mentors at the UW School of Medicine who have demonstrated excellence in mentoring by supporting students’ educational and career paths. Excellent mentors develop a supportive environment for scholarship, are readily available to guide students through their projects, provide instruction on research skills, support their personal and professional development, value scholarship, and demonstrate professionalism.
Eight mentors were selected by the UW School of Medicine Scholarship Committee to receive an Outstanding Research Mentor Award this year. Among them, two faculty members from the UW Department of Medicine were selected including Dr. Cory Simpson and Dr. Namrata Singh, Assistant Professor, Division of Rheumatology.
