Harvard University Provost Alan Garber today announced the appointment of a nationally recognized leader in interdisciplinary science, research, and entrepreneurship to serve as the University’s vice provost for research.Prominent chemist Richard McCullough, currently vice president for research at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, will assume his new post on Oct. 15. His portfolio will include interdisciplinary research, research administration and policy, and research funding.“Richard McCullough will be in a special position at a unique moment to cultivate high-impact academic research in the 21st century, as he stimulates, coordinates, and supports research on campus,” Garber said. “He will work with the deans and faculty, the executive vice president, and me to remove barriers to collaboration wherever they are found — whether in University policies or financial and administrative systems. He will be responsible for developing structures to support new cross-School research initiatives as they are brought forward by the Schools, and to promote research throughout the University.”During 22 years at Carnegie Mellon, McCullough also served as dean of the Mellon College of Science and as head of the department of chemistry.“I am deeply honored to have been selected to help lead Harvard’s renowned research enterprise,” McCullough said. “I see my role as that of an advocate for, and facilitator of, Harvard’s increasing focus on interdisciplinary, cross-School exploration and development, and I am committed to addressing the need to find new sources of funding in an era of constricting federal support for research.”The selection of McCullough follows a national search by a committee including Harvard deans, faculty members, and administrators. Garber said, “Members of the search advisory committee and top leaders in the University administration were impressed with McCullough’s skills, accomplishments, energy, and vision for the future.”McCullough succeeds David Korn, a nationally respected expert and leader on issues related to faculty financial conflict of interest, who initiated the development of Harvard’s first University-wide financial conflict-of-interest policy, which provided guiding principles upon which each School has based its policy.Besides his academic career at Carnegie Mellon, where he rose from assistant professor to become the university’s Thomas Lord Professor of Chemistry and vice president for research, McCullough is the founder of two companies: Plextronics Inc., an 80-employee firm founded on a technology he developed, and Liquid X Printed Metals.McCullough, whose research has principally been focused on developing printable electronic materials, other materials called regioregular polythiophenes, and nanoelectronic materials, earned a doctorate in organic chemistry at Johns Hopkins University. He joined Carnegie Mellon following a postdoctoral fellowship at Columbia University.

RelatedPosts Mike Tyson comeback fight postponed WBA Champion Charr to hold Ruiz Jr talks Mike Tyson beats up seven prostitutes Evander Holyfield has opened up on his state of mind when Mike Tyson infamously bit him during their heavyweight showdown in 1997, revealing a higher spirit urged him not to retaliate.Holyfield and Tyson met in a highly-anticipated heavyweight championship rematch at the MGM Grand, one year after Holyfield had defeated Iron Mike with an 11th round stoppage at the same venue. “The Real Deal” would emerge victorious for a second time but for all the wrong reasons, with the fight going down in history as one of the most controversial endings to a contest with Tyson biting part of Holyfield’s ear off.And Holyfield has revealed that he was prepared for Tyson to fight dirty, although he had not expected the fight to unfold as it had done.“You know, the thing is this prophet told me [before the fight] ‘Mike is going to do something bad to you in this fight,’” Holyfield told BBC Radio 5 Live. “He said ‘he going to do it, but you got to keep your mind on the Lord, that’s the only way he can get you, if he gets you distracted.’“Mike threw elbows, he hit you with his shoulders, he did a lot of this sneaky stuff. But you know, I just thought that was a part of boxing.“But when he bit me on the ear, I knew that wasn’t [part of boxing], and I was really, really upset. He almost got me because I was going to bite him back right in the face.” However, Holyfield says that a reminder of the message he received before the fight put him on the right path to overcome the adversity and not retaliate to the highly controversial antics of Tyson.“Since the prophet told me these things were going to happen, I told my corner guy [before the fight] that ‘if he does this stuff, remind me of what the prophet told me’.“And so all I was thinking about was I was going to bite him back, but my corner guy kept saying ‘keep your mind on the lord! Remember what he said!’“I didn’t want to remember, because I wanted to bite him back and let him know that I was mad too and all of a sudden it came to my mind what my Grandma said ‘you know revenge is the lord’.“I thought about it, and I told myself not to bite him. And I told Mike, one day we were at an interview together, ‘you know what I been ready to do bite you right there on your fat cheek’. “He said ‘you were gonna do that?’ and I said ‘yeah, but it came to my mind what my Grandma always told me’ and it changed my whole life, because the bout could have been over, the two best boxers biting each other!”Tyson was disqualified from the contest and fined £2.4 million for his actions in the fight.Tags: Biting IncidentBOXINGEvander Holyfieldmike tyson
Liverpool’s battle to hang on to Raheem Sterling appears to have taken another twist with Manchester United reportedly entering the fray. Reports have claimed the Reds’ arch-rivals made a cheeky enquiry for the 20-year-old, whose future is up in the air after talks over a new contract were halted in January. Any such approach would be flatly rejected by the Merseysiders, who do not want to sell the youngster never mind to their fierce Premier League rivals. Press Association Sterling’s agent Aidy Ward is due to meet Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre on Friday to discuss the future of the player, who still has two years left to run on his existing £35,000-a-week deal. Ward has had to deny initial reports he will tell Ayre the England international will not sign a new deal, saying: “The story has been blown somewhat out of proportion…..(we) have a meeting scheduled with Liverpool later this week and we will take proceedings from there.” Sterling was booed by some fans when he picked up his young player of the year award on Tuesday night, but former Liverpool captain Graeme Souness believes they are entitled to do so. “It looks like he wants to go and play somewhere else, which is really sad for Liverpool supporters,” he told Sky Sports. “If he’s privately making it known he wants to leave Liverpool then that word soon gets out and supporters are entitled to turn on him. “They support him through thick and thin. It looks like he’s turning his back on them which if he is, is very sad for the football club. “Just maybe someone should whisper in his ear and tell him he is not going anywhere. “He is a young man with lots of potential. He is far from being the finished article; he should stay at Liverpool, learn his trade and just get on with it. “But he has been advised by people who have maybe got the wrong priority. “Right now it is all about him learning to play the game, understanding the game and improving and he is at the best club he could possibly be at.” Former Liverpool midfielder Jan Molby believes the time might be right to sell. “If Raheem feels Liverpool is no longer the best place to be then I guess you have to bite the bullet and move him on,” said the Dane. “It is not like the sale of Luis Suarez. You knew the impact that sale would have on the team – I am not convinced if you sell Sterling it will have the same negative impact. “In my mind it might be the right time to sell because the club is in transition and maybe we could just do with that money. “I think we need to move away from buying potential and buy off the top-shelf, ready-made players, who can go in and improve the team.” Liverpool’s Champions League-winning midfielder Dietmar Hamann also agreed that if Sterling did not want to stay he should be sold. “I think Liverpool needs players who are committed now and if he feels his future is elsewhere then good luck to him,” said the former Germany international. “If he gets offered more money, Champions League football or a better opportunity to win trophies then that is his right to do that. “All you can do is put a price on him and if someone pays it you sell it and you get other players in.”
Say goodbye to “Gator Bait.”The long-held chant of the Florida Gators is about to be no more.University of Florida President Kent Fuchs said on Thursday that the school will be doing away with the cheer during all future athletic events.“While I know of no evidence of racism associated with our ‘Gator Bait’ cheer at UF sporting events, there is horrific historic racist imagery associated with the phrase,” Fuchs said.He continued, “Accordingly, university athletics and the Gator Band will discontinue the use of the cheer.”The chant has been used for decades by fans against Florida’s opponents.Another step toward positive change against racismhttps://t.co/O8uGuOjB2P— FLORIDA (@UF) June 18, 2020 However, some people have criticized the use of the chant, due to its racial undertones.Black babies were used as alligator bait in the state until around 1923, and the term “alligator bait” was used at the time as a racial slur referring to black children from Florida.The move follows the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, which has led to a nationwide reexamination of racial injustice.Last week, UF rescinded an admissions offer to a prospective student who posted a racial comment on social media.
