Rebecca Owen, administrative manager for the CF Center was recognized by Chancellor Holden Thorp on December 6, at a luncheon honoring all seven UNC employees chosen for the 2012 Chancellor’s Awards. The Chancellor's Awards were established in 1991 as a way to recognize UNC employees for their contributions and accomplishments to their department and the University as a whole.
Rebecca is credited with helping the CF Center grow from a funding base of $300,000 in 1998 to its current $14 million in annual expenditures. Through Rebecca’s tireless dedication to federal grants, private foundation, industry funding mechanisms, and budget planning, the Center has been able to fulfill, and continue, its research and therapeutics mission.
