Congrats Skelly – 2015 Sundberg Award Winner!!


We’re pleased to announce that Mary Jane Skelly has received the David Sundberg Award for 2015. Mary Jane recently completed a successful dissertation defense of her excellent research under the mentorship of Dr. Jeff Weiner. Her diploma at the May 18 Commencement will cap an outstanding period of accomplishment in our department and our community.

This was an especially challenging year for making the decision, as our graduating cohort included several exceptional students. Discussion of nominees was thorough and drew on personal interactions as well as the respective records of achievement. Each of this year’s nominees could have been deserving awardees in other years.

We take pride in our training programs and we have been blessed with many students of outstanding academic proficiency as well as exemplary character as citizens and colleagues. The Sundberg Award honors this professionalism in every way.

The award will be presented during a reception at noon on Friday, May 15, at the Biotech Place. Congratulations to Mary Jane Skelly on her well-deserved 2015 Sundberg Award.
