In recent years, a priority has been the recruitment of talented Assistant Professors conducting high quality research to advance and perpetuate the Department's legacy of excellence: in 2019 Dr. David Auerbach (cardiovascular, epilepsy) and Dr Nori Urao (wound healing, metabolic diseases) were recruited (please visit the recent podcast
and grant announcement
regarding Dr Auerbach and the feature on Dr Urao
). Dr Yamin Li (lipid nanoparticles, drug delivery) joined the Department in early 2022, and a new search is underway in late 2022.
