It is our sincere pleasure to congratulate Professor Melanie Woodin on her appointment as the new Dean for the Faculty of Arts & Science. Melanie will begin her 5-year term as Dean on July 1, 2019.

In CSB, we have benefited, and continue to benefit, from Professor Woodin’s leadership and excellence in research, graduate mentoring and training, undergraduate teaching, and service in many dimensions. In the last few years, she has made outstanding contributions to administration in the Dean’s office and will now have the opportunity to exercise her strong leadership and vision for the faculty going forward.

You can read more about her neuroscience research in Cell & Systems Biology and her plans for the faculty in this UofT News article.
