The Michael E. DeBakey, M.D., Excellence in Research Awards are given annually to
Baylor College of Medicine faculty who have made the most significant published
scientific contribution to clinical or basic biomedical research during the past
three years. The awards are funded by the DeBakey Medical Foundation.
Five awardees receive a commemorative medallion and $5,000 fund to support their
research. The award is not given as personal income and the Foundation wishes the funds to be used in furtherance of research.
Awardees will be asked to attend a reception honoring their achievements
and present a brief summary of the research for which they received the award.
In 2017, the ceremony and reception is anticipated to take place in May; exact date TBA but notice will be given in April.
