Please join us in congratulating Professor Helen Blackwell on being named a Vilas Associate! The Vilas Associates Awards are made possible through a gift from the Vilas Trust. The awards are open to Assistant, Associate and Full Professors all the way up to 20 years past tenure – that’s a huge range, and so the competition is extremely tough. The awards include summer salary and some flexible research funds for 2 years. Please join us in congratulating Helen on this recognition of her outstanding research! (Her email is email@example.com).
