Congratulations to Pharmacology’s Dr. Bimal Desai on receiving the Shannon Center Mid-Career Fellowship from the University of Virginia!

A new University of Virginia program announced this week has awarded 15 faculty members with fellowships to honor what Executive Vice President and Provost Ian Baucom called their “groundbreaking research” and “commitment to service” to the University.

The first group of Shannon Center Mid-Career Fellows represents faculty from nine of the University’s schools. The fellowship honors tenured faculty members who have made significant contributions to their departments and schools, but are not yet chairholders of endowed professorships.

The fellows will serve three-year terms. Each year, deans will nominate a new group of faculty members for the fellowship, supported through the University’s Shannon Center for Advanced Studies. The center, named for former UVA president Edgar F. Shannon Jr., has bolstered University faculty for nearly six decades.
