Date: July 3, 2018

I am delighted to announce the appointment of Stacie Grossman Bloom as New York University’s new Vice Provost for Research, effective August 27, 2018. She joins us from NYU Langone Medical Center, bringing strong experience in research administration and academic science policy and operations.

As Vice Provost, Dr. Bloom has the responsibility to foster interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research; facilitate technology transfer and business engagement; affirm the integrity of research processes and policies; steward the physical and administrative infrastructure necessary for research excellence; and establish collaborative partnerships within NYU and with other institutions. She will oversee the University’s entrepreneurial programs, including the Innovation Venture Fund, the Office of Industrial Liaison, the Office of Sponsored Programs, the Contract Office, and research regulatory compliance functions.

Dr. Bloom first joined NYU Langone Medical Center in 2011 as inaugural Executive Director for the Neuroscience Institute, where she managed strategy and operations. Since 2016, she has been Assistant Vice President for Policy and Administration, partnering with the leadership of the medical school and hospitals to align the overall strategy of NYU Langone across its basic science and clinical departments and institutes.

Prior to joining NYU, Dr. Bloom was Vice President and Scientific Director of The New York Academy of Sciences. She was awarded a Society for Neuroscience prize for outstanding dedication to mentorship, as well as fellowships at the National Institutes of Health, National Institutes of Mental Health, National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression, and Rockefeller University’s Women in Science Program. A prolific author and speaker, she was featured most recently in Forbes, on SiriusXM radio, at the National Academy of Sciences, and at The Women in the World summit. Dr. Bloom has a Ph.D. in Cell Biology from Georgetown University, completed her postdoctoral fellowship in molecular neurobiology at Rockefeller University in the lab of Nobel laureate Paul Greengard, and is Research Associate Professor of Neuroscience and Physiology at Langone.

I would like to thank Dr. Bloom’s predecessor Paul Horn once again for his exemplary leadership, insight, and dedication. Under his guidance, NYU has enjoyed remarkable growth and advancement in research and entrepreneurship over the last nine years. I am confident we will continue to build on this momentum.

I am also grateful to the members of the Search Committee, chaired by Deputy Provost Cybele Raver, who worked hard to identify strong candidates for consideration. Ultimately, it became clear that in Stacie Grossman Bloom we had an exceptional candidate within the NYU community.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Bloom and welcoming her into this new role.
