After 19 years as a professor in the University’s molecular biology department, Professor Bonnie Bassler will begin her term as department chair on July 1.
While the announcement was posted on the molecular biology webpage last week, the department has been preparing for the transition over the last several months. Bassler said she has made plans to enhance the departmental curriculum, research and public outreach.
Bassler will succeed professor Lynn Enquist, who has served as chair since 2004. In addition to hiring new faculty members and building the department’s resources throughout his term, Enquist played an instrumental role in the establishment of both the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Genomics and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute.
While Enquist is satisfied with the department’s progress under his supervision, he is enthusiastic about his successor, who he said has “exceptional energy and is really smart.”
