Subject New Norman F. Sprague Jr. Professor in Life Sciences
I am pleased to announce that Professor
Lisette dePillis has been named
the Norman F. Sprague Jr. Professor
in Life Sciences at HMC.
Sprague Professorship honors a faculty member who has contributed to
interdisciplinary work at the college in important ways, and recognizes
a faculty member outside of the department of biology who has
significant linkages to the department of biology. The previous Sprague
Professor was Sam Tanenbaum.
Lisette has been instrumental in developing and supporting the
Mathematical Biology program here at HMC. She is co-director of the
Keck Center for Quantitative Life Sciences and among her research areas
are cancer modeling and cancer immunotherapy modeling. She is
beginning her 15th year at the college and I am excited to honor her
with the Sprague Professorship.
Please join me in congratulating Lisette for her outstanding work and
commitment to the college.
Robert J. Cave
Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs and
Dean of Faculty
