All four of our new associate scholars have made tremendous contributions to their respective fields, and we are thrilled to welcome them to the Lozier Institute.”

 

Below are brief biographical sketches of each new associate accompanied by a link to their complete biography on our website.

 

Rev. Nicanor Austriaco, O.P., Ph.D., S.T.D.currently serves as Professor of Biology and Theology at Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island, where he runs an NIH-funded laboratory. Fr. Austriaco completed his bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering, summa cum laude, at the University of Pennsylvania and then earned his Ph.D. in Biology from M.I.T. where he was a fellow of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He was ordained a priest in the Order of Preachers in May of 2004. He completed his Pontifical License in Sacred Theology (S.T.L.) in Moral Theology, summa cum laude, at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C., in 2005 and a Pontifical Doctorate in Sacred Theology (S.T.D.), magna cum laude, at the University of Fribourg in Switzerland, in 2015.

 

Wells Logan, M.D. is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics in the College of Medicine at The Ohio State University and Associate Medical Director of Critical Care Transport at a hospital in Ohio. He completed his undergraduate studies in mechanical engineering at North Carolina State University, his graduate training at the Medical University of South Carolina and his post-graduate training in Pediatrics at the Medical College of Georgia. During his six years as a general pediatrician, he became increasingly interested in the care of infants with disabilities, many of whom were born very premature. After completing additional post-graduate training in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at Duke University, he began a long-term collaboration with the Extremely Low Gestational Age Newborn (ELGAN) Study Group which has yielded several important contributions.
