Jerome R. Cox Jr., ScD, senior professor, and Jonathan S. Turner, PhD, the Barbara J. and Jerome R. Cox, Jr. Professor, both in the Department of Computer Science & Engineering in the School of Engineering & Applied Science, have been selected to receive the 2011 Chancellor’s Award for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, announced Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton.
They will receive the award during the Faculty Achievement Awards ceremony at 6 p.m. Dec. 3 in Simon Hall Auditorium. A gala immediately follows in the Danforth University Center.
“Professors Turner and Cox are extremely deserving of this important recognition,” Wrighton says. “Both are highly regarded for their path-breaking research in engineering, but both also should be commended for their ability to turn their discoveries into commercial enterprises that have brought benefit to others.”
The Chancellor’s Award for Innovation and Entrepreneurship was first presented last year to Jack H. Ladenson, PhD, the Oree M. Carroll and Lillian B. Ladenson Professor of Clinical Chemistry in Pathology and Immunology and professor of clinical chemistry in medicine.
The award stems from the university’s involvement in entrepreneurship and technology transfer and is given to a faculty member whose research has led to the successful development of an idea or business that has brought great benefit to others.
