Cermak/Corkin
Postdoctoral Awards

In 2001, an annual award for outstanding postdoctoral researchers from the labs of MDRS members was established in the name of the founder of the society, Laird Cermak.

In 2017, this award was extended to also honor Suzanne Corkin and her legacy in championing women in science.

A few postdocs receive this award each year and are invited to present at the MDRS annual meeting.
