In 2020 UC Davis School of Medicine's highest award for teaching went to Ted Wun, associate dean for research and director of the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center. The award, C. John Tupper Prize for Excellence in Teaching was created by the founding dean of the School of Medicine to recognize sustained and enduring contributions to education.

"Professor Wun has helped shape a whole generation of doctors and researchers through a career dedicated to teaching and mentoring. He is the best teacher I have ever had."

Wun has proven to be a highly successful, effective, and well-recognized educator. He has made significant strides to improve education by developing a curriculum that stimulates students. He was instrumental in helping the hematology course become one of the highest-rated courses in the School of Medicine.
