Gretchen Piatt honored with 2023 MICHR Distinguished Clinical and Translational Research Mentor Award

Seven faculty members who contribute enormously to the research environment at U-M have been honored with the 2023 MICHR Distinguished Clinical and Translational Research Mentor Award.

Out of a competitive field of remarkable and generous research leaders, the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) has selected individuals who meet the highest standard for clinical and translational research mentorship. The pool of nominees represented a diverse group of U-M units, including, Engineering, the Institute for Survey Research, Literature, Science & the Arts, Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, and the University of Michigan Flint.

Gretchen Piatt, PhD, MPH, is a Professor in the Department of Learning Health Sciences. She is the Vice Chair of the department, the Associate Chair for Education Programs, and the Director of the Health Infrastructures and Learning Systems graduate degree program. She is also Director of Precision Health Graduate Certificate Program as well as a Professor of Health Behavior and Health Education.

The Twenfth Annual Awardees will be honored at a ceremony later this fall during the 2023 Mentoring Forum. More information will be forthcoming.

The award was established in 2012 to recognize faculty who foster the intellectual, creative, scholarly, and professional growth of their students, fellows, and trainees in the areas of clinical and translational health and research.
