Translating Research into Practice Faculty Award

January 8, 2013

Translating research into practice is a hallmark of IUPUI. Highlighting the significance and fostering increased focus on translational research was the reason for establishing the TRIP initiative in 2006 under the leadership of Professor Sandra Petronio.

To begin the new year, I am pleased to announce the establishment of the inaugural Bantz-Petronio Translating Research into Practice Faculty Award. With a gift to the IU Foundation, Sandra and I established the TRIP Award to recognize IUPUI faculty whose interdisciplinary or cross-disciplinary research and scholarship is intentionally directed toward making an impact on people’s lives in Indiana and beyond.

In addition to generating knowledge through scientific inquiry or humanistic scholarship, nominees should have actively endeavored to transform knowledge into practices or solutions, demonstrating innovative ways to improve the lives of individuals and the communities in which they live.

To submit a nomination, please send the following materials: (1) the name, affiliation (school or center at IUPUI), and current CV of the faculty member you are nominating; (2) your letter of nomination addressing specifically, including examples, the way your nominee’s work fits the above criteria; and (3) three nomination letters from national, international, and/or IUPUI faculty that should include contact information in order for the selection committee to gather further comments on your nominee’s work. 

The selection committee, representing diverse disciplines and schools at IUPUI, will review nominations and make a determination about the inaugural TRIP Award recipient, which will be announced in May 2013.

The award winner is expected to be present at the annual Translating Research into Practice Showcase in the fall of 2013. 

Please send nomination materials no later than March 1, 2013, to:
                  William Blomquist
                  Dean, IU School of Liberal Arts
                  CA 441
