Patricia DeLeon

Alison Award winner Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences

Patricia DeLeon, the Trustees’ Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences, has received the 2017 Francis Alison Faculty Award, the University of Delaware’s highest competitive faculty honor.

DeLeon, a reproductive biologist and a recognized international leader in the study of sperm dysfunction and infertility, is truly a scholar-schoolmaster as Alison was, said Robin W. Morgan, professor and chair of the Department of Biological Sciences.

In nominating DeLeon for the Alison Award, Morgan described her as dedicated to research and selfless in sharing her expertise with students and faculty and with colleagues around the world. Her work as a teacher and mentor “has been extraordinary,” Morgan said.
