The Greenwood Award is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Frederick C. Greenwood, an internationally acclaimed scientist and exemplary scientific administrator who worked at the University of Hawaii Manoa until his death in August 2000. From the inception of the RCMI Program and the Program Directors Association, Dr. Greenwood worked tirelessly to ensure that the program was well-funded and addressed the needs of the minority populations it was designed to serve. Dr. Greenwood was highly respected for his contributions to and productivity in his research area. He set and met high standards for research excellence. He also strongly advocated for research opportunities for students, particularly under-represented minority students.
The intent of the award is to honor individuals who exemplify either Dr. Greenwood's ideal of research excellence or his commitment to service to the biomedical science community, especially as it pertains to minority populations.
