Congratulations to Dr. Dan McGehee who has been awarded the 2016 Llewellyn John and Harriet Manchester Quantrell Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching.
Scholar of neurophysiology and extraordinarily accomplished teacher, Dr. McGehee engages his students in learning the foundational physiological principles of multicellular organisms. Dan’s research interests are in the biologic mechanisms underlying addition to nicotine and other substances of abuse. While he also teaches graduate and medical students, in the undergraduate College he is director of the “Fundamentals in Physiology” course, a popular yet demanding course required of all first year biology students.
Congratulations, Dan on being recognized by the University of Chicago undergraduate students as amongst "the very best of the best”!
