Announcement from Janet Nelson

Vice President for Research and Economic Development


It is my sincere pleasure to announce that Barrie Robison has been selected as the incoming Director for the Institute for Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Studies (IBEST), a Level 3 Institute within the Office of Research and Economic Development at the University of Idaho. Barrie previously held the position of Associate Director at IBEST and has a faculty position in the College of Science. 

Barrie has a deep knowledge of the program and its focal areas of research.  This, along with his positive energy, makes Barrie an exceptional addition to our leadership team.

I also want to thank Jack Sullivan for his wonderful leadership in the IBEST Director position and wish him well as he transitions from his administrative role to a more active focus on research and teaching.

Please help us in welcoming Barrie to the ORED Team.  He will begin his new appointment on February 11.
