Obviously elated with selection, Mauli quoted “It is a great honor. Some of the greats, at least in my field, are members of this academy. It’s good for San Antonio that we get more people there. Any recognition like this puts the spotlight on UTSA and I think that’s great.”
His colleagues reckon the recognition coming Agrawal’s well-deserved. “He’s been incredibly insightful in terms of not only what can be demonstrated in an academic and research environment but, more importantly, what will translate in terms of meaningful patient progress as well.” opined Dr Steven Bailey, the cardiology division chair at the health science centre and a longtime colleague of Agrawal’s.
