The Dougherty/Mike Medical Research Endowment in the College of
Science was established by Lucille Dougherty in honor of D. Mike,
J. B. "Don" Dougherty, and Lucille Dougherty.
Dougherty/Mike endowment funds are given to particularly
successful and outstanding full-time faculty members in the College
of Science who are doing research in basic or applied sciences with
contributions to human medicine. Preference is given to
laboratories in the Department of Biology that are studying what
the biological clock consists of and how it functions in regard to
medical significance, and also to research findings that contribute
to enriching the learning experiences of students enrolled in
College of Science courses.
Dougherty/Mike funds may be used in wide-ranging ways, from
purchasing equipment and supplies needed for experiments and hiring
students to assist with experiments, to hosting scientists to
consult with the researchers, supporting presentation of findings
at international meetings, and publishing research papers.
