GianCarlo Moschini, professor and Pioneer Chair in Science and Technology Policy, has been named Charles F. Curtiss Distinguished Professor in Agriculture and Life Sciences at Iowa State University.
The title of Distinguished Professor, first awarded in 1956, is Iowa State's highest academic honor. It recognizes a faculty member whose accomplishments in research or creative activities have had a significant impact on his or her discipline nationally or internationally and who has demonstrated outstanding performance in at least one other area of faculty responsibility. Nominees must hold the rank of professor and have served at least five years on the Iowa State faculty. The awardee retains the title for the remainder of his or her career at the university.
Iowa State's annual faculty-staff awards ceremony, which honors the recipients of 27 university-wide awards for excellence in teaching, research, outreach, service and professionalism, won't be held this fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Award plaques will be delivered to all recipients later this semester.
