Harvard creates Developmental and Regenerative Biology Department
By Gareth Cook, Globe Staff
Harvard University's governing body has approved a new Department of Developmental and Regenerative Biology, the first academic department in the university’s 371-year history to be based in more than one of the university’s schools.
The new department will bring together 13 to 16 researchers from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and Harvard Medical School. It will be co-chaired by biologist Doug Melton, the Cabot Professor of the Natural Sciences, and David Scadden, Gerald and Darlene Jordan Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. Melton and Scadden are also the co-directors of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, which was founded in 2004.
The decision by the Harvard Corporation is a response to a critical university report that called for better coordination of interdisciplinary research.
