The University of California, San Diego today announced the 2022 recipients of the Revelle Medal, which recognizes current and former faculty members for sustained, distinguished, and extraordinary service to the university. The 2022 Revelle medalists are: Patricia “Pat” Churchland, Lawrence SB Goldstein, Gilbert (Gil) Hegemier and J. Andrew McCammon.

Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla will award the Revelle Medals to recipients at UC San Diego’s Founders’ Celebration, an annual celebration of the founding of the university and those who helped make the campus one of the best universities of the world, on November 18.

“Roger Revelle’s vision to create a distinctive university by recruiting exceptional faculty from around the world has led to UC San Diego’s rapid rise to pre-eminence,” said Chancellor Khosla. “This year’s four winners carry on this legacy of excellence, prestige and distinction. They have impacted humanity by studying the interface between neuroscience and philosophy, the promise of stem cells, anti-seismic construction techniques and materials, and the chemistry of drug therapies in advanced medicine. Pioneers and trailblazers in their respective fields, the lessons of their progress will continue to expand students’ minds and propel scientific discovery and innovation for generations.

Created in honor of Roger Revelle, who helped establish UC San Diego during his tenure from 1950 to 1964 as director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the Revelle Medal honors the contributions of current and former members of the corps professor at UC San Diego. The 2022 winners are:
