Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine will begin searching for a new dean within the next coming weeks, the university announced in mid July.
Michael Kotlikoff, VMD, Ph.D., the Austin O. Hooey Dean of Veterinary Medicine, was recently named Cornell University’s 16th provost, which leaves the dean position open. Dr. Kotlikoff will assume his new position Aug. 1.
In the meantime, Lorin Warnick, DVM, Ph.D., professor of ambulatory and production medicine, has been appointed interim dean of the vet college. Dr. Warnick has served as associate dean for veterinary education for the past eight years and director of the Cornell University Hospital for Animals for the past three years.
