Glen Gaulton

Dr. Glen Gaulton has been appointed Executive Vice Dean and Chief Scientific Officer for the School of Medicine, Dr. Arthur H. Rubenstein, EVP for UPHS and Dean of the School of Medicine, announced. In this new role, Dr. Gaulton will lead the School’s research and research training enterprise and be responsible for both stimulating new research endeavors and providing the optimal intellectual and administrative support for ongoing research programs. Dr. Gaulton most recently served as Vice Dean for Research and Research Training and previously was Associate Dean and Director of Biomedical Graduate Studies and Director of the Combined Degree and Physician Scholar (MSTP) program. “In each of these positions, Glen strengthened and distinguished our School enormously, balancing vision with practicality in advancing the research mission and supporting the needs of faculty and trainees alike,” Dr. Rubenstein said.

“While Glen and I will continue to work together closely on our research vision, Glen will take the lead on implementing key initiatives that advance our strategic research goals along with full responsibility for our daily research and research training operations,” added Dr. Rubenstein. All administrative functions within the Dean’s Office that support research will now report to Dr. Gaulton through Chris Kops, vice dean for administration and finance. Dr. Gaulton will work directly with Department Chairs and Institute and Center Directors to set and track expectations and performance for research. Continued strategic focus on our scientific programs is particularly important as we plan for a new research building. Dr. Gaulton  is “already leading this planning process and his new role will further assure our success in this important effort,” said the Dean.

Dr. Rubenstein said he will devote more time to philanthropy, retention of faculty, as well as the recruitment of new senior faculty which are high priorities “to assure our future success.”
