Mark S. Schlissel, M.D., Ph.D.
University of Michigan President

4:00 – 5:30 PM
Ford Auditorium, UH

Sharon P. Douglas

Dr. Mark S. Schlissel became 14th president of the University of Michigan in July 2014, and he is the first physician-scientist to lead the institution.

President Schlissel previously was provost of Brown University, where he was responsible for all academic programmatic and budgetary functions within Brown's schools and colleges, as well as the libraries, research institutes and centers.

A graduate of Princeton University, he earned both M.D. and Ph.D. degrees at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. President Schlissel began his career as a faculty member at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1991, and in 1999 moved to the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California–Berkeley. He was UC-Berkeley’s dean of biological sciences in the College of Letters & Science until his appointment as Brown’s provost in 2011.

A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., we couldn’t be more thrilled that President Schlissel now resides in Ann Arbor with his wife Monica.

The talk is free and open to the public.
