Carolyn Cason named Interim Vice President for Research

Carolyn Cason has been named interim vice president for research as UT Arlington begins a national search for a permanent executive to direct its expanding research program.

Dr. Cason, a nursing professor who joined the University in 1997, most recently has served as the senior administrator for the Genomics Translational Research Laboratory and for the College of Nursing’s Smart Hospital and its Smart Care research program. Her research interests include support for diverse student populations, advancements in CPR protocols, and the use of “serious gaming” technology to improve health care educational and training outcomes.

Cason, whose appointment is effective Nov. 1, will be assisted by two other prominent University scholars and leaders: Richard E. Billo, associate dean for research in the College of Engineering, and Krishnan Rajeshwar, associate dean of the College of Science. Both will serve as interim associate vice presidents for research beginning Jan.1, 2012.

UT Arlington's current vice president for research and federal relations, Ron Elsenbaumer, will become provost and vice president for academic affairs Oct. 24.
