Prestigious Award for Case

Published: August 15, 2016

CHENEY, Wash. - Eastern Washington University's Judd Case, PhD, is one of two recipients of the 2016 Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) Visiting Professor awards.

Case, who currently serves as Eastern's dean of Special Projects, is one of two professors chosen worldwide for this distinguished assignment in the scientific community. The other is a highly regarded professor from New Zealand.

In 2004, Case was one of a team of fossil hunters who helped uncover a previously unknown, carnivorous dinosaur in Antarctica. He is also the recipient of numerous National Science Foundation grants, including one for an investigation of vertebrate evolution and biogeography in Antarctica.

Case will visit the Museo de La Plata in Buenos Aires, Argentina to provide a series of lectures and workshops. For more information on his visit and the visiting professor program, please see

An accomplished biologist, Case came to Eastern in 2006 as the dean of what was then the College of Science, Health and Engineering (now CSTEM).
