Michael E. DeBakey, M.D., Excellence in Research Awards
The Excellence in Research Awards are given on an annual basis in recognition of 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.
Awardees receive a commemorative medallion and fund to support their research. The awards are funded by the DeBakey Medical Foundation.
Awardees are usually announced in late May and presented at a ceremony mid-summer.
