Irvine named to professorship

Darrell J. Irvine, assistant professor of biological engineering and materials science and engineering, has been selected as the inaugural holder of the Eugene Bell Career Development Professorship of Tissue Engineering for a three-year term beginning Jan. 1, 2006.

This chair was recently established by Eugene Bell, a professor emeritus of biology, who said he and his wife, Millicent, decided to establish the chair because "building replacement parts for the human body answers the body's need to support and prolong the good life that is endlessly compromised by aging, disease, accident and genetic destiny."
