UM Biomedical Engineer Honored with Provost’s Award for Scholarly Activity
Dr. Fabrice Manns, professor of biomedical engineering and chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, was one of this year’s recipients of the University of Miami’s prestigious 2017 Provost’s Award for Scholarly Activity (PASA).
“I am honored to be selected for this award,” says Manns. “I am very grateful to the provost and the University of Miami College of Engineering for the recognition and continued support of our research. This award recognizes the diligent work of the team of researchers, students and faculty with whom I have been privileged to work with.”
Manns earned his PhD in biomedical engineering from the University of Miami and has been a faculty member at UM since 1997, working jointly in the biomedical engineering department and the Department of Ophthalmology. He also is the co-director of the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute’s Ophthalmic Biophysics Center, a research laboratory dedicated to the development of technologies designed to improve patient eye care.
Manns has been a principal investigator for numerous federally funded and industry-sponsored research projects. His research interests include laser applications in medicine, biomedical optical imaging, ophthalmic technologies, and optics of the eye and vision correction.
PASA recognizes exceptional faculty members who serve as mentors and leaders in their disciplines, working to transmit knowledge to students while inspiring them to make a difference in the world. The recipients of the PASA have demonstrated excellence in research through either a single achievement or several years of scholarly productivity.
