Research in the News
A new face and a familiar one have joined the leadership team in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education. Cynthia Czajkowski, professor of neuroscience in the School of Medicine and Public Health, has moved from interim to permanent status as the associate vice chancellor for research in the biological sciences. Florence Hsia, professor of history of science, has been appointed the associate vice chancellor for research in the arts and humanities.
The search for a new University of Wisconsin–Madison vice chancellor for research and graduate education is underway. Charged by Chancellor Rebecca Blank, a 15-member search and screen committee chaired by kinesiology Professor Dorothy Farrar-Edwards is conducting a nationwide search for a chief research officer to replace the recently retired Marsha Mailick.
The University of Wisconsin–Madison Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education (OVCRGE) invites researchers to submit multi-investigator proposals to join the 66 projects already funded through the UW2020: WARF Discovery Initiative.
