The Sigrid Leirmo Award is given to a graduate student or postdoctoral student who best exemplifies the spirit of Sigrid Leirmo. Sigrid received her PhD degree in Biochemistry in 1989 and was a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Bacteriology when she died tragically in an accident in 1990.  This award acknowledges a graduate student or postdoctoral student who is acknowledged by her peers and advisors as one who displays clear promise as a research scientist.  Most importantly, the award is to be designated in appreciation of the student's consistent willingness to contribute to the intellectual and technical potential of her fellow students and colleagues through the selfless help of others.
