The Liam J. Murphy Young Investigator Award was established in November 2006. The award is given to a young investigator every two years to a faculty member who has been on staff for less than six years and who shows evidence of developing a strong research program.

The award is granted every two years to one individual and announced at a departmental event.

Criteria for Evaluation

  • A monetary award of $20,000 for research support
  • An engraved presentation to the awardee
  • The name of the awardee will be engraved on the plaque in the Department of Internal Medicine
