Congratulations to Mr. Caden Poh, the Department’s 2019 Staff Service Awardee!


Please join us in congratulating Mr. Caden Poh, winner of this year’s Staff Service Award. Caden is a Research Assistant Technician with Dr. Erin Michalak in the CREST.BD lab. He was nominated for the award in recognition of contributions above and beyond his position, especially with respect to multiple successful grant applications where Caden was immensely helpful in producing diverse letters, as well as nomination and application documents, for these projects.

Way to go, Caden, on this well-deserved recognition!
