Dan Cox Is a Great Mentor
The Outstanding Graduate Mentoring Award went to Daniel N. Cox, senior professor of neuroscience. In 2016, Dan Cox’s lab had eight Ph.D. students, and he had weekly scheduled research progress meetings with each of them. His hard work paid off in progress – his graduate students authored five publications in highly-rated journals and have three others in submission from that single year. In the same year, his graduate students presented at 19 conferences. He also requires his students to mentor others by supervising undergraduate research and summer interns. It is worth mentioning that six graduate students submitted their own unsolicited letters in support of Dr. Cox, lauding his commitment, his clarity and his work ethic.
