James J. Collins has been named the recipient of the inaugural Anthony J. Drexel Exceptional Achievement Award. Drexel University Interim President C.R. "Chuck" Pennoni presented the award to Collins at the Translational Medicine Alliance Forum on May 14, 2009, in Philadelphia.

The Anthony J. Drexel Exceptional Achievement Award was created to recognize collaborative, multidisciplinary research focused on real-world solutions that change society. Collins' research led to the development of a new class of medical devices that addressed complications resulting from diabetic neuropathy, restored brain function following stroke and improved balance in the elderly.

"Collins exemplifies the translational researcher, developing new fields of study in biomedicine geared not only toward intellectual pursuits but also toward developing solutions," said Pennoni.
