The 2019 VIPBG Excellence Awards Announced

The Virginia Institute for Psychiatric and Behavioral Genetics pre- and post-doc awards were announced on December 16, 2019. Annually since 2007, one predoctoral and one postdoctoral trainee are selected to receive the awards. The process requires VIPBG faculty members to first nominate exceptional trainees. The final recipients are selected after a faculty discussion and vote. These awards consist of a certificate of recognition in addition to a $500.00 gift.

This year, the awardees include Kevin McKee, who received the Kenneth S. Kendler Award for Excellence in Pre-Doctoral Research, and Joshua Pritikin, Ph.D., who accepted the Lindon Eaves Post-Doctoral Award. Both Mr. McKee and Dr. Pritikin have been working with Michael Neale, Ph.D.
