2007 Scientific and Technological Achievement Awards (STAA) Honorable Mentions

Grantee Research Project Results

Extramural Research Search

Honorable Mention - The Subcommittee has also added a fourth non-cash level award for research efforts which are noteworthy but which do not warrant a Level I, II or III award. Honorable Mention applies to research that: (1) may not quite reach the level described for a Level III award; (2) show a promising area of research that the Subcommittee wants to encourage; or (3) show an area of research that the Subcommittees feels is too preliminary to warrant an award recommendation (yet).
