Oklahoma State University honored seven faculty members with the 2022 Regents Distinguished Research Award during the December 2022 University Awards Convocation.

The award recipients must demonstrate a distinguished record of past and continuing excellence in research and be recognized nationally and internationally.

“Research excellence is one of the hallmarks of our land-grant university,” said Dr. Kenneth Sewell, OSU’s vice president for research. “These honorees are great examples of the impact our faculty have on their disciplines and society at large, not to mention the transformative effect they have on their students here on campus.”

The Regents Distinguished Research Award program includes one award per college, except the College of Arts and Sciences which has two — one in the sciences and one in the arts/humanities disciplines.
