The Medical Research Foundation of Oregon seeks nominations for its annual Discovery, Mentor and Richard T. Jones New Investigator Awards. The purpose of these awards is to recognize Oregonians who are performing cutting edge research and demonstrating outstanding leadership. Awards are available in the following categories:

  • The Discovery Award acknowledges an Oregon investigator who has made significant, original contributions to health‐related research while working in Oregon. This research can be in the basic, clinical or behavioral sciences, or can be research in health care delivery, health informatics or health outcomes. The Discovery Award recipient will receive a cash award of $6,000 and a commemorative award.
  • The Mentor Award is presented to an Oregonian who has provided outstanding leadership in support or development of health research, education or the advancement of health care. The Mentor Award recipient will receive a cash award of $6,000 and a commemorative award.
  • The Richard T. Jones New Investigator Award recognizes a new investigator who shows exceptional promise early in a career in biomedical research. This individual must be within seven years or less of completing clinical and/or post‐doctoral training and will be judged on the basis of independence, quality of science, national funding and first or senior authored publications in peer‐reviewed biomedical research journals. The culmination of the research must have been performed in Oregon. The Richard T. Jones New Investigator Award recipient will receive a cash award of $3,000 and a commemorative award.

Nominations are due August 22, 2014 by 5 p.m. For information on how to nominate your colleagues, visit the MRF website or download the request for nominations.
