Sydney Weber earned the Michael W. Finkelstien Award for Superior Achievement in Dental Histology. The Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology presents this award annually to a dental student who demonstrates high scholastic achievement in histology, together with particular dedication to those ideals of scholarship and professionalism exemplified by the late Professor Michael Finkelstien during his tenure as professor or oral pathology, and anatomy and cell biology. Dr. Finkelstein's untimely death is deeply felt by his family, his friends, and his colleagues, and the many students he mentored and inspired over the course of his distinguished career.
