The University of Florida Research Foundation, or UFRF, named 33 faculty members as UFRF professors, among them Eric Krause, Ph.D., an associate professor of pharmacodynamics. The recognition goes to faculty who have a distinguished current record of research and a strong research agenda that is likely to lead to continued distinction in their fields.
Krause will receive a three-year $5,000 annual salary supplement and a one-time $3,000 grant to assist him in his research projects.
“Since 1997, more than 700 faculty members have been named UFRF Professors,” said David Norton, UF’s vice president for research. “Many have gone on to spectacular success, earning grants and fellowships from a wide array of public and private funding sources; publishing in the leading journals in their field; assuming institutional leadership positions; and commercializing their discoveries for the benefit of society.”
