Dr. Courtney A. Matson wins the 2021 James Kaper Award from the Department of Microbiology & Immunology. The Kaper Award is given each year for the best graduate in the MMI program – selected by the program leadership considering the student’s thesis work, community participation and overall scholarship. The award includes a $1000 prize funded by an endowment from Dr. James B. Kaper, the chair of the Department and the Vice Dean for Academic Affairs at the UMSOM. Here she is pictured with Dr. Kaper and Dr. Bret Hassel, the Director of the MMI graduate program.
