Janet Nelson was named the new associate vice chancellor for research for the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.
As associate vice chancellor, Nelson will initially oversee three groups—the research development team, the faculty development team, and the research informatics group.
“I am extremely excited about the terrific opportunities that await me at UT, and I am looking forward to working closely with the Office of Research and Engagement team,” said Nelson.
Nelson, who earned her doctorate in chemistry from the California Institute of Technology in 1991, has broad research-related experience across academia, government, not-for-profit organizations, and industrial communities.
Nelson is a member of the American Chemical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and the Society for Biological Engineering.
