Director Appointment
Cancer Research Institute (CRI)

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce that Professor Marian Waterman has been appointed as the Director of the Cancer Research Institute (CRI), effective January 1, 2015.

Dr. Waterman has served as the Vice Chair of the Department of Microbiology & Molecular Genetics, as well as CRI’s Associate Director and Interim Director.  She received her Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego.

I would also like to convey my sincere appreciation and gratitude to Professor Hung Fan for 30 years of outstanding leadership as the Director of the Cancer Research Institute.  Dr. Fan’s vision and insight, coupled with his ability to bring scientists together collaboratively, have fostered an atmosphere where cancer research has flourished literally for decades.

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Marian Waterman to her new position within the Cancer Research Institute. I look forward to the next chapter for the Institute under her leadership.
John C. Hemminger
Vice Chancellor for Research
