Alexander Revzin has been selected as a 2011-2012 Chancellor’s Fellow. Professor Revzin will receive a one-time award of $25,000 to support his research, service and teaching activities. He will also have the honor of using the title, “Chancellor’s Fellow,” until July 1, 2016. The Chancellor’s Fellows Program is supported by funds from the Chancellor’s Club and the annual fund of the University of California, Davis.
Established in 2000, the program honors the achievements of outstanding faculty members early in their careers.
In a letter to Prof. Revzin, Chancellor Linda Katehi wrote, “It is clear from your record and the information provided by Dean Lavernia that the quality and significance of your research and teaching merits this recognition.”
Biomedical Engineering Department Chair Kyriacos Athanasiou says, “This is a great recognition of Dr. Revzin’s accomplishments as well as his leadership role in our Biomedical Engineering Department.”
Professor Revzin has also recently received two important grants: an NIH R21, title: “Novel heterotypic cell cultures for liver toxicology studies” as PI and NSF, title: “Materials World Network: Switchable Polymer Interfaces for Bottom-up Stimulation of Mammalian Cells” as the Co-PI.
