The Pharmacology Department sends kudos to Dr. Carl Creutz, Professor of Pharmacology, for being the recipient the 2021 Robert J. Kadner Award for Outstanding Graduate Teaching.

This award is presented in honor of Dr. Robert J Kadner, an internationally recognized microbiologist whose research on microbial physiology spanned four decades. Dr. Kadner was highly revered by medical and graduate students for his mentorship and teaching at the UVA School of Medicine, where he remained dedicated to education and research up until his death in 2005. Throughout his career, Dr. Kadner was recognized for his strong advocacy of teaching, particularly in the basic sciences, as well as for his mentorship of medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, and junior faculty.

The Kadner Award recognizes School of Medicine faculty members engaged in basic science or clinical laboratory research who show a strong commitment to teaching in both the classroom and laboratory setting. Dr. Creutz exemplifies Dr. Kadner’s legacy though outstanding instruction in graduate and medical classrooms as well as through his teaching and mentorship to trainees ranging from undergraduate students to senior professional research staff in the Pharmacology Department. The department is very grateful for his commitment to excellence in teaching and research!

The Dean’s Award Ceremony will be held in March 2022. We look forward to supporting Dr. Creutz in receiving this well-deserved honor. Be sure to give him your congrats when you see him around!
