Everyone in Cell & Systems Biology is familiar with the smiling face and focused tone of our Chief Administrative Officer Tamar Mamourian. She is always available to facilitate solutions to a problem, suggest more sensible alternatives, or sometimes just listen.

Tamar combines her keen perceptions with a deep understanding of the workings of the University that comes from 35 years of service. That service has been recognized by the University through the 35 Long Service Award. This Award recognizes the role she has played in the success of our institution, her commitment to excellence, and cites the benefits her efforts have yielded for her colleagues and our students.

We give our warmest congratulations to our cherished colleague, Tamar Mamourian.
