OWEN FIRST RECIPIENT FROM UNDERGRADUATE COLLEGE TO BE GIVEN â€œEXCELLENCE IN MENTORINGâ€ AWARD
Judith Owen, Haverford biologist and director of the Marian E. Koshland Integrated Natural Sciences Center, is the 2003 recipient of an“Excellence in Mentoring” award from the American Association of Immunologists. Owen, who joined Haverford's faculty in 1981, is the first recipient from an undergraduate institution to be given this award.
In addition to her research in immunology, Owen has taken an active role in recruiting and retaining women scientists on Haverford's campus. In 1991, she was the recipient of the National Science Foundation's prestigious Faculty Award for Women Scientists and Engineers – an honor given to only 100 educators nationwide in recognition of their significant research and contributions to science and education.
