If you have not yet heard, Boston University has received its biggest gift in history-- $115 million-towards the construction of the Center for Integrated Life Sciences and Engineering (CILSE) and in support of interdisciplinary research. This is a remarkable gift! We are excited to see the positive impact it has on the research in the BUSM community and academic world for decades to come.
Serving as a guest blogger, Dean Antman, reflected on the path that led to her current role as the first female Dean of BUSM and Chair, AAMC Council of Deans. Her post reminds us of what often goes unseen: the long path and dedication that leads to success.
We were deeply sadden to learn of the passing of Lorraine Stanfield, MD. Having joined the BUSM community in 1991, she worked tirelessly as director of our Clinical Skills and Simulation Center, as a student advisor, and in many more capacities. For those who wish to send condolences to her family, we welcome an email to email@example.com by Wednesday, October 4.
Thank you for keeping connected to BUSM. Please share your stories-- personal and professional! We enjoy hearing from you and seeing you at events. Next up: the BUSM Alumni Black History Symposium on October 4. Register today and join us for a spectacular and timely conversation.
