CLAS Faculty Advance the Cutting Edge of Research

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The University of Florida Research Foundation has named six CLAS faculty members UFRF Professors for 2008-2011. The recognition goes to those who have a distinguished current record of research and a strong research agenda likely to lead to continuing distinction in their fields.

The UFRF professors were recommended by their college deans based on nominations from department chairs, a personal statement and an evaluation of recent research accomplishments as evidenced by publications in scholarly journals, external funding, honors and awards, development of intellectual property and other measures.

“These nominating documents invariably use phrases like ‘cutting edge,’ ‘innovative,’ and ‘most productive’ to describe these researchers’ work,” said Win Phillips, UF’s vice president for research. “They — and hundreds of others like them — are the reason we have been able to move into the top tier of research universities nationally.”

The three-year award includes a $5,000 annual salary supplement and a one-time $3,000 grant. The professorships are funded from the university’s share of royalty and licensing income on UF-generated products. Founded in 1986, the not-for-profit foundation provides a means by which research can be conducted flexibly and efficiently and by which discoveries, inventions, processes and work products of UF faculty, staff and students can be transferred from the laboratory to the public. Funds generated by licensing such discoveries are used to enhance research at the university.
