Wilson appointed faculty liaison in research office
Marlene Wilson, a professor and chair of the Department of Pharmacology, Physiology, and Neuroscience in the School of Medicine, has been appointed faculty associate for biomedical research in the Office of Research and Graduate Education.
Wilson will develop workshops in NIH grant writing, serve as the research office’s faculty liaison with animal resource facilities, assist in development of core research facilities, and develop the University’s research connections with the Greenville Hospital System.
“Marlene has a long and successful track record as a biomedical scientist with significant administrative experience,” said Stephen Kresovich, vice president for research and graduate education. “She’ll be a real asset to our efforts to bolster biomedical research throughout the University.”
Wilson’s NIH-supported research investigates the neurochemical underpinnings of anxiety-related and seizure disorders. She will retain her position as department chair as she serves as faculty liaison in the research office.
“In addition to working with the animal users group and the animal resource facility, I’m looking forward to expanding opportunities for faculty development and training for graduate students in grant writing,” Wilson said. “I think we can engage biomedical science areas in developing our core facilities and in enhancing the research component of our interactions with the Greenville Hospital System.”
