Frank and Yolande Fowler Endowed Chair
Assistant Professor in Developmental Biology

Frank and Yolande Fowler Endowed Chair

The Department of Biological Science has received a generous gift that will provide significant research support for an endowed chair in an area of biology broadly related to cancer research. The gift allows us to seek a colleague doing basic research on any of the many topics that inform cancer research. Examples might include cell biology, developmental biology or bioinformatics. We are hoping to attract someone within this spectrum who would feel at home interacting in a biology department that has made efforts to link cell and molecular biology with evolutionary processes. Competitive candidates will be interviewed as they are identified.

Enquiries can be sent directly to the Chair of our Search Committee, Dave Gilbert, at
