Latoya Allen

Latoya Allen is the recipient of the Madelyn Lockhart Emerging Scholar Honorable Mention Award sponsored by the Association for Academic Women (AAW). Latoya is a fifth year graduate student in the laboratory of Dr. Gordon Mitchell. This award recognizes Latoya’s high level of scientific productivity, her contributions to breaking down barriers to success for the students that she mentors, and her outreach activities. The AAW will present her the award at the Women’s History Month Celebration that will be held at the University House on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at 5:30pm.

The AAW at the University of Florida established the Madelyn Lockhart Dissertation Fellowship in 1996 to honor an outstanding graduate student. One fellowship is awarded to assist in the dissertation phase of the doctoral degree. The award was established to recognize Dr. Madelyn Lockhart who served as Dean of the Graduate School and Dean of International Studies and Programs from 1985 to 1993, Associate Dean from 1981 to 1985 and Assistant Dean from 1973 to 1977 and 1979 to 1981.

The nomination for this prestigious award came from the Honors students.  The award will be presented at the annual Honors Banquet on Tuesday, April 10th, at the Cade Museum. Since 2000 Dr. Ritz has taught in the undergraduate Honors program, and is one of the few COM faculty who teaches in the program. UF honors students are among the brightest students on our campus.  At least 110 of Dr. Ritz's undergraduates have gone on to medical school, with others going to graduate school.  More recently, some of these undergraduates have been finding their way into research labs within the Department of Neuroscience and the McKnight Brain Institute.
