The Colorado Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI) Clinical Science Graduate Program has awarded Judy Regensteiner, PhD, School of Medicine, the Outstanding Research Mentor Award for 2013. This award is based on student nominations that describe the attributes of the person and details examples that make this individual an outstanding mentor.
One of Regensteiner’s mentees is Amy Huebschmann, MD, (in photo above at left with Regensteiner on right) who said “Judy has clearly exemplified the following twin characteristics of an outstanding mentor: encouraging my scientific development and providing altruistic support of my career. In the nine years since Judy and I began working together, she has shepherded me from curious primary care clinician to a K-award funded clinician-scientist. She has taught me the clear scientific thinking and writing necessary to write nine successful research grants and to publish 14 manuscripts, and I credit much of my scientific success to her training.”
Another mentee of Regensteiner’s has described her as “the pinnacle of all mentors.”
Awards were presented to the recipients at the Clinical Science Program Awards Ceremony on August 19, 2013.
