Mark Marten Wins USM Regents’ Faculty Award
Mark R. Marten was awarded the USM Board of Regents’ Faculty Award for Collaboration in Research. Regents' Faculty Awards publicly recognize distinguished performance on the part of faculty members and are the highest honor presented by the Board of Regents to exemplary faculty members. Awardees are selected by the Council of University System Faculty and submitted to the Board of Regents for approval. Dr. Marten and his collaborator, Dr. David Schaefer, professor of Physics, Astronomy and Geosciences at Towson University, won this award based on national and international recognition for their interdisciplinary research, which serves as a model of inter-USM campus collaboration and advances the biotechnology and bioprocess industries.
