$100,000 Exceptional Achievement Faculty Award Announced
January 19, 2009

Through the philanthropic support of an alumnus, Drexel University has established the $100,000 Anthony J. Drexel Exceptional Achievement Award for faculty nationwide. The annual award will have a different area of focus each year and will go to a scholar, scientist, engineer or clinician in the United States. This year, the recipient will have demonstrated exceptional activity in innovative translational research that pushes the frontiers of biomedical engineering and related life sciences and addresses unmet needs in healthcare.

Each year, Drexel will appoint a selection committee composed of distinguished Drexel academics and internationally recognized leaders in their respective field to choose the recipient. This year’s committee is chaired by Richard E. Caruso, founder and board of directors chairman of the New Jersey based Integra Life Sciences and 2006 National Entrepreneur of the Year. John DiNardo, Drexel vice provost of academic affairs, will serve as convener of the committee. The recipient will be honored at spring and fall events at Drexel including an awards gala and academic seminars.

The University will accept nominations from January 15th through March 15th, 2009. To be eligible, nominees must be faculty members currently employed at an institution of higher education or a non-profit research institution in the United States. They also must be available for the presentation of the award and for post-award academic activities. Drexel faculty are not eligible to apply, but may nominate candidates.

The achievement award is named for Drexel University’s founder Anthony Joseph Drexel (1826-1893), one of the most influential financiers of the 19th century. Nominations will be accepted electronically. To nominate an individual or for more information, visit the Anthony J. Drexel Exceptional Achievement Award online.
