I am pleased to announce that Suresh Subramani, Professor in the Molecular Biology Section, has agreed to serve as Interim Dean of the Division of Biological Sciences effective September 1, 2006.
Professor Subramani has played an integral role in the development of the Division of Biological Sciences, having served as the last Chair of the Department of Biology prior to its reorganization as a Division, and as the Interim Associate Dean for the Division of Biological Sciences in 2000-2001. Professor Subramani is an outstanding scholar and is the recipient of a Searle Scholar Award, an NCI Research Career Development Award, and a Guggenheim Fellowship.
I am confident that Dr. Subramani will provide outstanding leadership to the Division of Biological Sciences until a new permanent Dean is identified. A nationwide search will be initiated shortly.
Please join me in thanking Professor Subramani for his leadership and commitment to facilitating a positive transition for the Division of Biological Sciences and the University.
