On December 13, NIEHS honored employees at the Director's Annual Honor Awards Ceremony in Rodbell Auditorium. The event was chaired by Director of Education and Biomedical Research Development Marian Johnson-Thompson, Ph.D. Handing out awards were Acting Director Sam Wilson, M.D., Acting Deputy Director Bill Suk, Ph.D., Acting Scientific Director Perry Blackshear, M.D., D.Phil., Division of Extramural Research and Training Acting Deputy Director Pat Mastin, Ph.D., and Deputy Associate Director for Management Chris Long.

Program Analyst Diane Crawford, the organizer of the event, had notified the NIH Merit Award and Service Award winners, but there were also three categories of winners that were not announced until the ceremony itself. Unlike the announced winners, the winners in the categories of Unsung Hero, Peer Awards and Fellows Award for Research Excellence Awards could look forward to seeing a very tangible and negotiable acknowledgement of their contribution to the mission of NIEHS.
