District Attorney Reisig Awarded Calvin Handy Leadership Award

District Attorney Reisig Awarded Calvin Handy Leadership Award

The University of California, Davis has honored Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig with the 2014 Calvin E. Handy Leadership Award.

In 2005, in an effort to honor Chief Emeritus Calvin E. Handy’s service to the UC Davis community as chief of the UC Davis Police Department from 1993 until 2005, and to continue his legacy of public service leadership, members of the campus community developed the Calvin E. Handy Leadership Award.  The purpose of the award is to recognize an individual community member, a group or organization that, through leadership actions, has made significant contributions in promoting leadership through diversity.

Davis startup creates life saving solutions

Davis startup creates life saving solutions


DAVIS - Stratovan's motto is saving lives through software.

When you talk to co-founder David Wiley, you sense it's not just talk. He started the company in 2005 with his computer science professor at UC Davis Dr. Bernd Hamann.

"I really felt we could make a difference," Wiley explained. "I really felt the healthcare market needed it, our help the most."

The company started out building next generation 3D medical imaging software. Taking CT scans, they render them in 3D which can be viewed from various angles.

Dr. Boaz Arzi at the UC Davis animal hospital is using their software to study jaw joints on mammals.

"Over a long period of time, you can really get a high body of work that is very precise using this software," Arzi said.
