Congratulations Dr. Carol Williams!
Medical College of Wisconsin names Dr. Carol Williams as Eminent Scholar
MCW Cancer Center member and co-leader of the Cancer Biology program, Carol L. Williams, PhD, was awarded Eminent Scholar designation at the March meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). She joins Mingyu Liang, MB, PhD, who was named an Eminent Scholar in September 2015, and William Drobyski, MD, and Brian Link, PhD, who were named Eminent Scholars in March 2015.
The Eminent Scholar program recognizes and rewards excellence in academic and scholarly achievement that ordinarily would be funded from an endowed chair. The term of the funding is five years and is awarded to the faculty member, rather than the department. Funds are used to support academic and scholarly activities which can include lab expenses, travel to seminars or conferences, and/or funding a portion of the faculty awardee’s base compensation.
