The Department of Biochemistry Welcomes a New Chair

Welcome to our new Chair, Brian Fox. Brian joined the Biochemistry faculty in 1993, and has served the broader University community as Associate Vice Chancellor for Research Policy since 2012. Biochem welcomes Brian’s strong leadership in furthering the Department’s tradition of mentoring exceptional scientists and developing and applying its research to improve lives across the globe. We thank him for his willingness to take on this formative task, and look forward to sharing in the tremendous experience and energy he brings to his new role.

Thank you to Betty Craig, who served the Department as Chair for 10 years.  Betty joined the Biochemistry faculty in 2002 and took on its leadership as Chair in 2005.  She deftly navigated the Department through changes in campus and community governance, economic uncertainties, significant renovations to the Biochemistry complex, and continued the development of opportunities to serve our students and the University.  We are deeply appreciative of her service.
