Yuk Fai Leung received a "Nothing Is New Under The Sun" award from the first-year medical students, class of 2020, at the Indiana University School of MedicineWest Lafayette. They acknowledged Fai for his effective teaching of essential knowledge on molecular and cellular medicines, sharing of mnemonic tricks, and great humor throughout the course. Even though these students had to study so many topics, they realized that these topics were unified by a coherent principle through Fai's teaching, and "nothing is new under the sun". In the end, they could study with ease. This award was presented at the 18th Annual Spring Celebration Dinner of the Indiana University School of MedicineWest Lafayette.
