Since the program’s inception in 2012, 236 faculty have been named University Faculty Scholars. These faculty members carry the title for the duration of their faculty appointment at NC State and receive an increase to their base salary.

Each college may submit nominations for assistant professors appointed for a second term, associate professors and professors within the first three years of their appointment. Senior faculty then review nominations, evaluating them on research and scholarship productivity, excellence in teaching and mentoring, and leadership in extension, professional societies and public service initiatives.

Yevgeny Brudno, assistant professor from the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, was named a scholar for this academic cycle. His research focuses on chemical, biomaterial and nanomedicine technologies to understand physiological responses during disease and regeneration. Brudno Lab uses chemical prodrug therapy, controlled drug delivery and nanomedicine to enable new forms of cancer chemotherapy and immunotherapy as well as the treatment of infection and other diseases.
