Julie Blatt, Nancy Raab-Traub, Eliana Perrin, Melissa Miller, Ellen Jones, Wendy Brewster, and Cecile Skrzynia have been elected to their respective committees. Please read this letter from Paul Godley, MD, PhD, MPP, Executive Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs to learn more about the process.


This year we implemented  a new approach to recruiting candidates to fill vacancies on our SOM Appointments, Promotions, and Tenure Committees. A Nominating Committee comprised of faculty representatives and school leadership selected the faculty running for open Appointments, Promotions and Tenure committee slots. We would like to thank each and every one of our volunteers for their willingness to be candidates.

The results have been tabulated, and the following faculty members have been elected to serve:

Full Professor Committee: Julie Blatt, Medicine; Nancy Raab-Traub, Microbiology & Immunology

Associate Professor Committee: Eliana Perrin, Pediatrics; Melissa Miller, Pathology & Laboratory Medicine; Ellen Jones, Radiation-Oncology

Fixed Term Professor Committee: Wendy Brewster, OB-Gyn; Cecile Skrzynia, Medicine

Thanks to all of these individuals for their willingness to commit their time and energy to this important process for both the School of Medicine and the University. Thanks to all of you for voting in this year’s election.

Respectfully yours,

Paul A. Godley, MD, PhD, MPP
