Julie Suarez named CALS director of translational research programs

Julie Suarez has been named the inaugural director of translational research programs in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS). Suarez will remain CALS’ associate dean for land-grant affairs while she fulfills the five-year, renewable director position.

The new position is intended to increase access to state, federal and private-sector funding and to assist Cornell in providing purpose-driven science to fulfill the university’s Land-Grant mission and commitment to New York state, said Benjamin Houlton, the Ronald P. Lynch Dean of CALS. Both of those needs were identified as focal areas for the college’s Roadmap to 2050 strategic plan.
