Ag Research Award

The Purdue Agricultural Research Award is our highest honor given to mid-career faculty members—those with less than 18 years experience beyond the Ph.D.—for excellence in applying scientific principles to solve important research problems. Recipients have, through their research, made significant contributions to agriculture, natural resources, and the quality of life of Indiana citizens.
