The title of the research, a brief description of the research goals, completion month and year of the research, and purpose of the research, as well as optional letters of support are used to review nominees for this award. Self-nominations are accepted. All nominations must include an IRB approval document, a statement of why waived/not necessary, or a plan for IRB approval must be submitted.
