Distinguished Professor Kristi Anseth was selected by the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs as the 2023 Outstanding Postdoc Mentor of the Year Award recipient.
Anseth's nomination for this recognition was made by postdoctoral scholars in the Anseth Research Group, including Alex Khang, Della Shin, George Tseropoulos, Kaustav Bera, Michael Blatchley and Monica Ohnsorg. Their nominations highlighted Anseth's exceptional leadership in mentoring more than 45 postdoctoral researchers, with 20 of them now serving as faculty members at top universities. The group also praised Anseth's “incredible empathy and understanding” with personal matters requiring time away from the lab, as well as her commitment to fostering a healthy work/life balance.
Anseth will be recognized September 20 during a celebration breakfast for National Postdoc Appreciation Week.
