Scientist receives top prize for research
Dimitar Deliyski, an associate professor in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, has been awarded the 2010 Manuel Garcia Prize for contributions in the field of communication sciences and disorders worldwide.
The Garcia Prize is given by the International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics (IALP), a worldwide association comprising all national affiliates, including the American Speech Language and Hearing Association. Recipients of the Garcia Prize, which has been awarded once every three years since 1968, include a select list of scientists who have shaped the field of communication sciences and disorders. Deliyski is the fourth scientist from the United States to receive the prize.
Deliyski’s receipt of the Garcia Prize is in recognition of his research team’s scientific contributions to the official journal of IALP and to the field of communication sciences and disorders for the period 2007-09. An article published by Deliyski’s team in 2008 will be included among the very best contributions to the official journal of the IALP on the association’s Web site.
The award will be presented to Deliyski in August at the opening ceremony of the IALP World Congress in Athens, Greece.
