The Sarah Graham Kenan Award recipients will receive five-year, renewable terms, and are subject to a rigorous review process.


Last week, Ada Adimora, MD, MPH; David Margolis, MD; and Janet Rubin, MD; were named Sarah Graham Kenan Distinguished Professors.  Dr. Adimora co-directs the UNC CFAR Developmental Core, and Dr. Margolis directs the HIV Cure Center.

As the Sarah Graham Kenan Distinguished Professorship is one of the most prestigious awards given my the UNC Chapel Hill School of Medicine, each candidate was subject to a rigorous review process.  After a preliminary review by a committee of distinguished School of Medicine professors, the Dean’s Advisory Committee, the University’s Health Sciences Advisory Committee, the UNC Chapel Hill Board of Trustees, and the Appointment, Promotion, and Tenure Committee evaluated the accomplishments of each professor.
