Congratulations to the three CHPS faculty members who received the 2021 UCF Research Incentive Award.

This year’s winners from the College of Health Professions and Sciences are: Jacqueline Towson, from the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders; Matt Stock, from the Division of Physical Therapy; and Adam Wells, from the Division of Kinesiology.

The UCF Research Incentive Award (RIA) recognizes outstanding research, scholarly, or creative activity that advances the body of knowledge in a particular field, including interdisciplinary research and collaborations. Recipients have contributed to UCF’s key goal of achieving international prominence in research and creative activities. Award recipients receive a one-time award of $5,000, and a $5,000 increase to their base salary effective at the beginning of the succeeding academic year.

“We could not be more proud of the research being conducted by these three CHPS investigators,” says Jennifer Kent-Walsh, associate dean of research in the College of Health Professions and Sciences. “It is our honor to recognize their work within their respective disciplines and well beyond. Their research findings have ongoing broad impact for societal health and wellness.”
