Denton Award for Graduate Student Excellence in Teaching and Mentoring 

This award honors biochemistry graduate students who consistently provide quality guidance and scientific training in mentoring undergraduate students in their research efforts and show evidence of quality, commitment, and innovation in teaching. Previously, the award was split into two different awards, one for laboratory mentoring and the other for teaching, but were combined in 2012. This award is made possible by the generosity of Arnold E. and Catherine M. Denton.
