Four scientists “who have demonstrated outstanding research achievements in their field of expertise” will be honored at a ceremony today as they receive the UIC Researcher of the Year Award.

The award, now in its third year, is given in four categories: social sciences and humanities, natural sciences and engineering, clinical sciences and basic life sciences.

Selected by the Campus Research Board and the vice chancellor for research, each winner receives a $3,500 cash prize.

This year's winners are:

Simon Alford: How does the brain work? The questions continue

Brian Bauer: Into the wild, using new ways of studying Inca civilization

Donald Morrison: Sharing results helps other scientists further their work

Ghanshyam Pandey: using basic science, clinical research to study depression, suicide
