Chii-Dong Lin was a recipient of a prestigious Higuchi-KU Endowment Research Achievement Awards for 2010.
The awards, now in their 28th year, honor outstanding accomplishments in research by faculty members at KU and other Kansas Board of Regents institutions. The recognition program was established by Takeru Higuchi, a distinguished professor at KU from 1967 to 1983, and his late widow, Aya.
Four individual awards are given the award annually. They are named for former leaders of KU Endowment who played key roles in recruiting Higuchi to KU. Their longtime financial support of KU helped enhance university research throughout the state of Kansas.
Each award includes a plaque and a $10,000 grant for ongoing research efforts. The award money can be used for research materials, summer salaries, fellowship matching funds, hiring research assistants or other support related to research.
The 2010 Higuchi Award winners were recognized formally at a ceremony and reception Nov. 3 at the Adams Alumni Center on the KU campus in Lawrence.
