March 25th, 2014 – Department Chair Dr. Matt Mauro receives the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) Gold Medal at SIR's 39th Annual Scientific Meeting. The SIR Gold Medal, the Society's highest career honor, is bestowed for distinguished and extraordinary service to SIR or to the discipline of interventional radiology.

 March 27th, 2014 – State and University leaders convened to dedicate the nine-story, 343,000-square-foot, $245 million Marsico Hall housing state-of-the-art imaging equipment aimed at advancing the University’s cancer and other health science research initiatives. As UNC’s now 3rd-largest building on campus, Marsico’s consolidation of imaging equipment on three floors is rivaled only by the imaging resources housed in one building at Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital.
