In 2006, Dr. Andy Baum (above) was recruited to the University of Texas at Arlington as the Jenkins Garrett Professor of Psychology. He was previously at the University of Pittsburgh, where he was the Deputy Director for Cancer Control and Population Sciences, Director of the Division of Cancer Control and Supportive Care Sciences, Behavioral Medicine and Oncology Program. While he was at Pittsburgh, he developed a comprehensive bioassay laboratory for the study of important topics such as stress, psychoneuroimmunology and disease.

As part of his recruitment package, Dr. Robert Gatchel was able to secure funding in the amount of $300,000 from the very competitive University of Texas System-wide Superior Talent Acquisition Request (STARS)/Emerging Technology Fund Program to develop our now comprehensive bioassay/genetics laboratory, established through Dr. Baum's expertise in this area. With Dr. Baum's unexpected death in November 2010 at the young age of 62, his extensive network of professional colleagues and friends donated monies to further develop and run what is now called the Dr. Andy Baum Memorial Bioassay Laboratory, a lasting legacy in his memory.
