We’re pleased to announce that svexa’s Board Chairman Professor Euan Ashley has been awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship. This prestigious honor recognizes mid-career scholars, artists, and scientists who have demonstrated a previous capacity for outstanding work and continue to show exceptional promise.
Euan Ashley is an associate dean of the School of Medicine, the Roger And Joelle Burnell Professor of Genomics and Precision Health, and a professor of medicine, of genetics, and of biomedical data science. Ashley’s research group is focused on the science of precision medicine. In 2010, he led the team that carried out the first clinical interpretation of a human genome.
“Looking at the roster of inspirational figures from the arts, literature, and sciences who have previously received this accolade, I am humbled,” said Ashley. “I am particularly excited to be receiving the award in the same year as my friend Abraham Verghese, one of my favorite writers, period!”
