Faculty to Take on New Roles in the Department

As of this summer, two of our Division Heads, Jennifer Doudna of BBS and Nilabh Shastri of IMP, will be stepping down as Division Heads. Please join us in thanking them for their fine service to their Divisions and to the Department.

We are pleased to announce that Eva Nogales will be the new Division Head for BBS, starting at the beginning of the Fall semester (late August).

We are also pleased to announce that Greg Barton will be the new Division Head for IMP, starting July 1.

Abby Dernburg has agreed to replace Eva as Chair of the Undergraduate Affairs Committee.

Jim Hurley will replace Eva as the Chair of the Biophysics Graduate Program.

We thank our colleagues for taking on these important roles in the Department.
