Deb Contestabile Receives ACE Staff Award

April 28, 2023

20230601_dc.jpgDeb Contestabile received an AS&E ACE staff recognition award for the month of April 2023. Staff play a critical role to the success of AS&E and the University as a whole.  ACE awards recognize staff that display the University’s visions and values. Awardees are nominated by faculty, staff, or students and the winners are chosen on the first of each month by the Dean of the Faculty.

Deb has only been with the Biomedical Department since August 2022, but has worked for the University of Rochester for over 20 years.  She was nominated by her co-worker, Gina Eagan, Student Programs Assistant for the Biomedical Engineering Department.

"Deb joined BME in August 2022 and has given positive support to faculty and staff in her role as Marketing, Communications & Outreach Manager.  Deb is always a pleasure to work with. She is such an uplifting and positive person that she lightens up the room. She is dedicated and committed to her work. With four new staff members we don't always know what needs to be done but Deb has created content with minimal guidance. Her creativity is impressive and is an exceptional asset to the team."
       - Gina Eagan, Student Programs Assistant for BME

Deb has been working on updating the BME website, social media accounts, and various department publications. She recently set up a LinkedIn Page for BME in an effort to help alumni keep in touch with current faculty and students. If you have news - she wants to share it, and you can email her at

"I was surprised and very moved to receive the ACE award. The Biomedical Department is proving to be a wonderful department to work for, and I am so happy to be a part of this team. Thank you!"
