Not one but two people nominated Chris Vinyard, Ph.D., professor of anatomy.
Here’s what they had to say about their colleague:
I’d like to nominate Chris Vinyard as an unsung hero. Chris has been a selfless University leader in education, service and research for nearly two decades at this University. He’s been particularly generous in helping students and junior colleagues. He definitely deserves this recognition.
--Jesse W. Young, Ph.D., associate professor of anatomy and neurobiology
I would like to second this nomination. Chris Vinyard is the colleague who is ALWAYS there for you. He helps with teaching, with service, with research. If there is a problem, he will always use his best thinking to solve it. He does it quietly and anonymously and without fanfare.
--Rebecca Z. German, Ph.D., professor of anatomy and neurobiology
