Ignazio Carbone Selected as University Faculty Scholar

Congratulations to Dr. Ignazio Carbone for his selection as a 2014-15 NCSU University Scholar! The annual University Faculty Scholars Program was established in 2012 by Chancellor Woodson to recognize and reward emerging academic leaders among our faculty. Dr. Carbone is among eighteen NCSU faculty members that were honored as University Scholars in this third group of recipients. The recognition comes with a significant award supplement and will be formally presented in a university ceremony in early 2015.

Dr. Carbone is recognized as a world authority and driving force in contemporary evolutionary genetics that is highly valued by his peers at NCSU and abroad as a leader and collaborator. At the time of his promotion to associate professor with tenure in 2008, Dr. Carbone received the C.J. Alexopoulos Prize from the MSA as outstanding early career mycologist. In 2009 Dr. Carbone received the Syngenta Award from the American Phytopathological Society (APS) for excellence in scholarship during his first decade in a plant pathology career. He was recognized for research excellence by NCSU with the Stewards of the Future Outstanding Research Award in 2012. Most recently, he was selected to receive the 2014 Ruth Allen Award from APS for innovative research that has the potential to change the direction of research in any field of plant pathology. In total, Dr. Carbone is valued as an outstanding teacher, researcher, and faculty mentor of students and young professionals – he is truly a consummate scholar in every sense and most deserving of recognition as University Faculty Scholar.
