Steven Corcelli, Sylwia Ptasinska , and Matthew Ravosa, faculty members of the Stavropoulos Center for Interdisciplinary Biophysics and the Biophysics Graduate Program, have received 2018-2019 Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C., Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching.
The awards are presented by the Office of the Provost, and the recipients are selected through a process that includes peer and student nominations. Steven Corcelli, Matthew Ravosa, and Sylwia Ptasinska are among twenty Joyce Award recipients.
The Joyce Awards, established in 2007, are supported by a gift from the late Father Joyce’s classmates of Notre Dame’s Class of 1937. They honor faculty members who have had a profound influence on undergraduate students through sustained exemplary teaching, and, in particular, recognize professors who create environments that stimulate significant student learning, elevate students to a new level of intellectual engagement and foster students’ ability to express themselves effectively within their disciplines.
The Dockweiler Awards, established in 2007 with a gift from the Julia Stearns Dockweiler Charitable Foundation, recognize faculty or staff members who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to Notre Dame undergraduates through outstanding mentoring, academic advising or career counseling services.
The Biophysics Graduate Program, is part of the new Stavropoulos Center for Interdisciplinary Biophysics. Biophysics graduate students have the opportunity to work with scientists at the intersection of physics, biology, and chemistry, collaborate with clinicians, mathematicians, and engineers to develop a predictive understanding of biological processes, including cancer, development, infection, and the immune system.
