Two research staff members from the Department of Medicine have received a School of Medicine “Research Staff Appreciation Award,” in recognition of their exemplary support in the conduct of basic, clinical and translational research projects. The School launched this new annual awards program this fall. Each of the three award recipients receives a plaque and $250.00.
Research Staff Appreciation Award in Translational Research
Ashley Finlen Copeland, Associate in Research, Department of Medicine
“Ashley demonstrates the highest qualities and abilities in a clinical researcher. She is able to see the flow of a study, think carefully about the potential obstacles and propose several solutions. If her high quality research and her extensive experience in research weren’t enough, Ashley is a kind and thoughtful person.” Laurie Snyder, MD, MHS, Associate Professor of Medicine
Research Staff Appreciation Award in Clinical Research
Pamela Gentry, RN, Clinical Research Nurse, Department of Medicine
“Pam has worked in the Division of General Internal Medicine for 10 years, and has played an integral role in the division’s research mission. I work with Pam very closely on a number of projects, and her experience, knowledge, and genuine concern for patients go above and beyond what I’ve experienced in the past.” Megan M. Oakes, Clinical Research Coordinator.
