The 2012 Achievement Award
The 2012 Achievement Award was awarded to Katherine W. Ferrara, University of California, Davis, USA for long-term contributions to biomedical ultrasonics, molecular imaging and image guided drug delivery The Achievement Award is the highest Society-wide award presented to a member in special recognition of outstanding contributions. Selection criteria include significant technical publications in the field of ultrasonics, ferroelectrics, or frequency control, as well as contributions to these technical fields, and service to the Society.

Achievement Award: Jackie Hines, Katherine W. Ferrara, Matt O’Donnell

The 2012 Distinguished Service Award

The 2012 Distinguished Service Award was awarded to Susan Trolier-McKinstry Professor of Ceramic Science & Engineering, Pennsylvania State University and Director of the W. M. Keck Smart Materials Integration Laboratory, USA. Citation: “For over twenty years of leadership and commitment in a wide range of positions including President Elect and President of the Society, VP of Ferroelectrics, Co-chair of IEEE Standard for Ferroelectricity and Associate Editor of the TUFFC”. The Distinguished Service Award recognizes long-term support of the Society's activities. Recognition is given to those who innovate new Society programs, administer major committees, manage society functions, or promote the Society's areas of technical interest to the larger community.

Distinguished Service Award: Ahmad Safari, Jackie Hines, Susan Trolier-McKinstry

The 2012-2013 Distinguished Lecturer Award

The Distinguished Lecturer award was received by Michael Driscoll who will lecture on “Low Noise Signal Generation and Verification Techniques” from July 2012 to December 2013. This award represents the UFFC Society by giving lecturers worldwide to the larger technical community. The subject of the lecture must be of current interest, and the lecturer must be a prominent contributor in the field of the lecture. The speaker is selected for speaking style, prominence in the topic, and willingness to commit significant time and energy to preparation, travel and lectures.

The Outstanding Paper Award (T-UFFC 2011)
Gianmarco F. Pinton, Gregg E. Trahey and Jeremy J. Dahl received the Outstanding Paper Award for their publication “Sources of Image Degradation in Fundamental and Harmonic Ultrasound Imaging: A nonlinear, Full-Wave Simulation Study”, Vol. 58, no 6, June 2011, pp 1272-1283.

Outstanding Paper Award: Jackie Hines, Gianmarco F. Pinton, Gregg E. Trahey and Jeremy J. Dahl
