Four people have been selected to receive UC Irvine’s most prestigious honor, the UCI Medal, which annually confers lifelong recognition on those who have made exceptional contributions to the university’s mission of teaching, research and public service. Michael A. Mussallem, chairman and CEO of Edwards Lifesciences Corporation and member of the Engineering Leadership Council, is one of the medalists.
“Our UCI Medalists deserve the highest praise for their contributions to the mission, spirit and vision of our campus and community, and this year’s extraordinary honorees are no exception,” said Chancellor Michael Drake. “Our meteoric rise into the top ranks of American universities is due in large part to their foresight, commitment, energy and innovation.”
