Bronson honored by Commission for Women

April 08, 2015

Sarah Bronson, associate professor at Penn State College of Medicine, has received the 2015 Achieving Women Award from the University’s Commission for Women. The award recognizes Penn State women who have shown notable leadership and accomplishment in their fields and have gone beyond the requirements of their employment duties and responsibilities in support of the University’s diversity efforts, to promote equal opportunity, or contribute to human causes and public service activities.

Nominator Dr. Harjit Singh describes Bronson as “passionate” about her work. Bronson’s passion for her field is equally apparent in the classroom working with students as it is outside the classroom working to develop better courses, better graduate programs and a better environment for graduate students.

Bronson was appointed director of research development and interdisciplinary research in the College of Medicine within the past year. In her role, she engages with investigators at all levels to help them craft research projects, identify the best agencies to submit their research ideas for funding, and brainstorm new funding opportunities using internal funds to support innovative applications to funding agencies.

Bronson received her award at the eighth annual Commission for Women luncheon on April 2.
