UNeMed's annual Research Innovation Awards Banquet is the culmination of a week of activities that celebrate research and innovation at UNMC. The awards recognize faculty, students and staff that invented a new technology, licensed an invention or secured intellectual property rights during the previous fiscal year. UNeMed also presents Emerging Inventor, Lifetime Achievement, and Innovator of the Year awards as circumstances dictate. Finally, UNeMed also presents a “Most Promising New Invention” as an annual award.
The 2017 Research Innovation Awards Banquet was held Thursday, Oct. 26, 2017, at the Michael Sorrell Center in the Truhlsen Campus Events Center. Donny Suh, M.D., won the Emerging Inventor award on the back of five new inventions he submitted during the previous fiscal year.
