Tops in technology: UH math professor honored for aneurysm work

HOUSTON, April 12, 2005 Suncica Canic, a University of Houston mathematics professor, has been named one of Houston's top women in technology by the Houston chapter of the Association for Women in Computing (AWC).

One of 23 honorees, Canic will receive her AWC-Houston Leadership in Technology Award during the annual gala June 11 at the Inter-Continental Houston Hotel. Dedicated to the advancement of women in technology fields, the AWC, founded in 1978, is a national non-profit professional organization for women and men interested in information technology.

Along with the other award winners, Canic was selected based on her leadership roles in Houston's technology and computing arenas, as well as her significant career accomplishments. Representing an array of leaders in Houston, the 2005 recipients are all positive role models for women.

In particular, Canic has collaborated with researchers at the Texas Medical Center to develop improved stents to treat arteries damaged by aneurysm. She uses complex mathematical models to perfect stent design and has initiated interdisciplinary alliances among experts in cardiology, mathematics, biology, engineering and scientific computing to address the issues related to this type of medical treatment.

"Dr. Canic's research is very important in the treatment of coronary artery disease and in aortic abdominal aneurysm," said John Bear, dean of UH's College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. "We are very pleased that the AWC is honoring her with this award."

Last year, Susan Hardin, an associate professor of biology and biochemistry, brought home this honor for UH.

Canic received her bachelor's degree from the University of Zagreb in Croatia and her doctorate from the State University of New York at Stony
