W. Matthew Leevy, research assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame and director of In Vivo (biological) Imaging within the University’s Integrated Imaging Facility, has been named recipient of the 1st Source Bank Commercialization Award celebrating research that has made it to the marketplace.
Established in 2008 with a $1 million gift from 1st Source Bank, the award is presented each year to faculty from Notre Dame or the Indiana University School of Medicine-South Bend who have successfully transitioned their technology from the lab to the marketplace.
The In Vivo Imaging Facility provides a non-invasive approach to observe various disease and biological models in living systems. The author of hundreds of papers, video articles and imaging protocols, Leevy was recognized for his extensive expertise both on the Notre Dame campus and across the nation.
