Six CLAS Faculty Named to UFRF

The University of Florida Research Foundation (UFRF) recently recognized its annual class of UF Research Foundation Professors. The three-year professorships were created to recognize faculty who have established a distinguished record of research and scholarship that is expected to lead to continuing distinction in their field. Six CLAS professors received the awards this year: Peter Hirschfeld, physics; David Hodell, geological sciences; Walter Judd, botany; Lisa McElwee-White, chemistry; Milagros Pena, sociology and women’s studies; Jane Southworth, geography.

Founded in 1986 to enhance research at UF, the UFRF has become the primary vehicle for handling research and intellectual property interactions with private companies and foundations. Today, it manages more than 800 grants and some 60 licensed technologies.
