Name Droppers: UCD honors two of its own

By
From page A6 | August 29, 2014 |

Faculty associations at the UC Davis have honored two of their own: Linda Bisson, recipient of the Charles P. Nash Prize, and Thomas Cahill, recipient of the Distinguished Emeritus Award.

The Davis Division of the Academic Senate, the Academic Federation, the Davis Faculty Association and the Nash family have been presenting the Nash Prize since 2008, the year after Charlie Nash’s death. He was a professor of chemistry and a longtime faculty leader.

The prize honors a faculty member who epitomizes Nash’s commitment to shared governance, and his advocacy on behalf of faculty interests and welfare.

Bisson, who holds the Maynard A. Amerine Endowed Chair in Viticulture and Enology, served as Academic Senate chair in 2006-07, 2007-08 and again in 2011-12.

The UCD Emeritus Association bestows its Distinguished Emeritus/a Award annually, honoring the recipient’s outstanding scholarly work or service since retirement.

An atmospheric scientist, Cahill is an international authority on the makeup and transport of airborne particles. His work since retirement includes analyses of the pollution that spewed from the ruins of the World Trade Center after the Sept. 11 terrorist attack

The Emeriti Association said of Cahill: “His focus on the impact of atmospheric particulates has consistently focused on human health effects,” including, for example, the threat of aerosols from railroads and freeways, as well as the World Trade Center.

Two UC Davis professors will participate in the opening ceremony of the 25th annual Brazilian Congress of Entomology conference, set Sept. 14-18 in in Goiânia.

Integrated management specialist Frank Zalom, president of the 7,000-member Entomological Society of America, and a professor in the department of entomology and nematology, will invite the attendees to the 62nd annual ESA meeting, to be held Nov. 16-19 in Portland, Ore.

Zalom will spotlight the events planned; the theme, which he selected, is “Grand Challenges Beyond Our Horizons.”

Chemical ecologist Walter Leal, a professor in the department of molecular and cellular biology and co-chair of the 2016 International Congress of Entomology, will give two presentations at the opening ceremony: the plenary lecture and a talk on ICE 2016.

He will invite the Brazilian Congress to attend ICE 2016, to be held Sept. 25-30, 2016 in Orlando, Fla. It promises to be the world’s largest gathering entomologists.

Leal, a native of Brazil, will deliver the opening plenary lecture for the third time — he also presented plenary speeches at the 2004 Brazilian Congress of Entomology in Gramado, and at the 2008 Brazilian Congress of Entomology in Uberlandia.

Both Zalom and Leal are ESA fellows.
