URC accepting Levy Award nominations
The University Research Committee (URC) is accepting nominations for the Levy Scientific Research Award, given annually to both a junior and senior faculty member whose research was published in a peer-reviewed journal and judged to be the best published manuscript submitted in competition with other Emory faculty.

The award is open to faculty in mathematics and social sciences, as well as chemistry, physics and biological sciences. Individuals may self-nominate or be nominated by other faculty; nominations should include five copies of papers published from 2002–04. A brief description of the papers’s results and impact in the appropriate field should be included.

Nominations may be submitted directly to the URC, G65 Rollins Research Building. For more information, call Melanie Kingston at 404-727-7503.
