A professor emeritus in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Santiago Grisolia, M.D., Ph.D., was recently recognized by the King of Spain for his achievements. He is now the Marquis of Grisolia.
Dr. Grisolia, who lives in Valencia, Spain, was director of the McIlvain Laboratories from 1954-62 and professor and chairman of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from 1962 to 1973. To commemorate his career, in 1997 the department established the Santiago Grisolia Research Fellowship for Excellence in Biomedical Research by a Medical Student, awarded at the annual Student Research Forum.
Juan Carlos I recognized Dr. Grisolia for long and commendable career of teaching and research and his contribution to scientific knowledge. Though the title is an honorific, carrying no financial or legal benefits, the honor was widely reported in major Spanish newspapers, according to Antonio Artigues, Ph.D., director of the Mass Spectrometry Laboratory and a native of Spain.
"We are proud of Dr. Grisolia and wish him and his family well," said Gerald Carlson, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. "Dr. Grisolia has brought international honor to himself and to the University of Kansas Medical Center."
