Recognizing Research and Innovation Excellence

The annual Discovery & Innovation awards program recognizes faculty, staff, postdoctoral scholars/fellows, graduate students, undergraduate students and mentors who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments to research in their field. The program also recognizes individuals and start-ups awarded patents, options, or licenses with the support of the University of Iowa Research Foundation to help protect and commercialize their intellectual property.

The University of Iowa Office of the Vice President for Research provides researchers and scholars with resources, guidance, and inspiration to secure funding, collaborate, innovate, and forge frontiers of discovery that benefit everyone. More at, and on Twitter: @DaretoDiscover.
