Nominations Now Open for the 2021 Unsung Hero Award

The success of The KITE Research Institute is due in large part to the contributions of our outstanding students, scientists and clinicians. Often overlooked, however, is the important role played by our dedicated staff. These essential members of the team provide logistical support, help navigate bureaucratic obstacles, coach students, assist with grant applications and provide various other support.  

These contributions are critical to the success of our Institute. Each year we recognize the role our colleagues play with a special award intended to highlight the efforts of individuals and/or a group whose commitment and dedication to KITE sets them apart. While the last two years have presented many obstacles, we’ve emerged stronger than ever thanks in large part to their strength, dedication and compassion.

The Unsung Hero Staff Recognition Award is bestowed annually on an individual or group who assists in nurturing a positive corporate culture and helps our research teams operate more effectively. We ask that you please take a minute to think about those under-appreciated team members who deserve credit for their hard work and commitment in 2021.

Value: $1,000.00

Eligibility: A staff member/group (this includes managers and supervisors) who has made a significant contribution to the operation of The KITE Research Institute during 2021.
