Biology Professor Dr. Hillel Chiel Named as “Distinguished University Professor”

Each year, Case Western Reserve University recognizes faculty who have “exceptional records of scholarship and have made significant contributions to their fields”, enriching the university community. In 2024, three faculty members were given this honor including biology professor Dr. Hillel Chiel. This is the highest honor the university can grant to faculty.

“Dr. Chiel is a consummate scholar, a deep thinker, an influential writer, a dedicated mentor, an inspiring teacher, a selfless advocate for the goals of the university, and—above all—an outstanding scientist,” said Lee Thompson, interim dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

“I hope that my focus on taking things apart and trying to put them back together again—using both analysis and synthesis—inspires other investigators to do the same,” Chiel said. “I also hope that my ideas about how important it is to consider the nervous system in the context of the body will continue to influence others for some time to come.”

Congratulations Hillel!
