Each year at UC Irvine, a senior graduate student in the Department of Pharmacology is selected to receive the Henry Wood Elliott Award.

Dr.  Elliott was chairman of the department from 1968 to 1976. At the time of his death, his widow, Donna, established this award in his memory.

The award includes a certificate, the student's name on a permanent plaque in the pharmacology department and a monetary award.

Nomination and selection guidelines include:

  • The Henry Wood Elliott Memorial Award is given to one outstanding graduate student every year who is working with a primary faculty member or joint faculty member of the Department of Pharmacology.
  • Graduate student candidates may belong to any of the UC Irvine graduate programs but must actively participate in the pharmacology graduate program by attending pharmacology journal clubs and seminars during their entire Ph.D. studies.
  • Graduate student candidates must have advanced to candidacy.
  • Nominees will be judged principally on the basis of their excellence in basic research. Their publication record will be used as the primary criteria for evaluation, which will only include manuscripts published or accepted for publication (impact factors will be of consideration).
  • Nominees must be registered students at the time the award is made.
  • Nominations may be submitted by any primary faculty member or joint faculty member of the Department of Pharmacology who will act as the nominee’s sponsor. Graduate students can also self-nominate, but written justification for their lack of sponsorship is required.
  • The nominating committee is established every year by the Chair of the Department of Pharmacology and shall include at least three primary faculty members or joint faculty members of the Department of Pharmacology who are not sponsors of the nominees and one member from outside the Department of Pharmacology.
