COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Jayanth Ramadoss, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology (VTPP) at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), was named a 2017-18 Montague-Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) Scholar.

The award has been given annually since 1991 to one tenure-track faculty member from each college based on their ability and interest in teaching. Each awardee receives a $5,000 grant to further develop innovative teaching techniques that can be made available to other faculty members.

"Dr. Ramadoss joins a distinguished group of our college faculty members who have been recognized with this honor," said Dr. Eleanor M. Green, the Carl B. King Dean of Veterinary Medicine. “We are proud of Dr. Ramadoss for his commitment and dedication to providing an excellent learning environment for students. This award highlights his excellence in teaching, as well as his engaging and dynamic teaching methods. We are proud that he is part of our illustrious team.”

With the money received from the Montague-CTE Scholar program, Ramadoss plans to positively impact undergraduate education by utilizing state-of-the-art teaching approaches and engaging students in the classroom using real-life scenarios that foster problem solving. Additionally, he wants to provide personalized, hands-on research training to undergraduate students and diversify the undergraduate talent pool in maternal, fetal, and infant health research.

“Dr. Ramadoss has developed, what I believe, is a remarkable gift—the ability to inspire students to get involved in science by understanding and appreciating it,” said Larry Suva, Ph.D., VTPP department head. “He is a ‘lead by example’ model for his students and is driven by his passion for education and science. The CVM is fortunate to have such a gifted young academician on our faculty.”

Ramadoss joined the CVM faculty in 2015 and teaches physiology for bioengineers. His student evaluation average is an impressive 4.96 out of 5, and he has been selected for other teaching awards, such as the 2016 Juan Carlos Robles Emanuelli Teaching Award.

Ramadoss’ passion for science and teaching inspires and motivates his students to show up to class, learn something new, and make an impact. As a Montague-CTE Scholar, Ramadoss will be able to further provide his students with educational enrichment.

“Dr. Ramadoss is the ‘real deal,’ an academic with an impressive educational commitment, coupled with a dedication to serve and help everyone,” Suva said. “These qualities are fundamental to why Dr. Ramadoss continues to be a rising star in our department, college, and university.”

The Montague-CTE Scholars awards are named in honor of Kenneth Montague ’37, a distinguished alumnus and outstanding trustee of the Texas A&M Foundation.
