Here we go again

From the Dean:

Dear Colleagues,

I write to update you on a leadership team change. Dr. Clifford Steer is taking on a new role as Associate Dean for Industry Partnerships in the Medical School. The purpose of this function will be to increase relationships between the University of Minnesota Medical School and biomedical and pharmaceutical industries to enhance funding and scientific opportunities.

Cliff’s specific duties will include:
  • Developing relationships with key industries
  • Organizing Medical School efforts to initiate industry partnerships and support
  • Facilitating faculty/industry partnerships; and
  • Engaging in fundraising activities and goals as it relates to industry
In a time of limited resources, enhancing our partnerships with industry is key to success. With Cliff’s experience and expertise, he is the right leader to create and drive this type of function in our organization. Cliff will begin his new role on March 1, 2017.

Dr. Mark Rosenberg, Vice Dean for Education and Academic Affairs, will assume leadership of the Office of Faculty Affairs for an interim period.

Sincerely,
