Stephen DiCarlo, Ph.D.
Stephen DiCarlo, Ph.D., a professor of the Wayne State University School of Medicine’s Department of Physiology, will receive the Arthur C. Guyton Educator of the Year Award from the American Physiology Society.
Dr. DiCarlo will be presented with the honor during the Experimental Biology Annual Meeting in Anaheim, Calif., in April.
The award recognizes a faculty member who has independent evidence of excellence in classroom teaching over a number of years; commitment to the improvement of physiology teaching within the candidate's own institution; contributions to physiology education at the local community, national and international levels; outreach activities at the state, national, and international level; and contributions to education through APS activities, peer-reviewed educational journal articles and widely disseminated publications.
“Arthur C. Guyton’s research contributions, which include more than 600 papers and 40 books, are legendary and place him among the greatest figures in the history of cardiovascular physiology,” Dr. DiCarlo said. “Although Guyton’s research accomplishments are legendary, his contributions as an educator have probably had an even greater impact on the world. Thus, I am deeply humbled and proud to receive this prestigious award, named for an amazing man with legendary accomplishments.”
Dr. DiCarlo is internationally recognized for his teaching abilities and contributions to medical education. He has received numerous teaching awards, including the Lamp Award, given to the School of Medicine faculty member determined to be the best teacher, mentor and inspiration for students. He was selected to present the Claude Bernard Distinguished Lecture during the Experimental Biology Meeting in 2009.
