Please join me in welcoming our newest CFR team member, Dr. Kara Primmer, who started with Development on October 18 as a Director of Foundation Relations reporting to FR Senior Director Amanda Retartha. Kara comes to our department from Notre Dame’s Environmental Change Initiative where she was the Program Director. Prior to that role, Kara served as a Research Technology Program Director and Grants Program Manager for Notre Dame Research. Kara earned her Ph.D. in cell and molecular biology at Notre Dame. We are grateful that Kara has brought her technical expertise, grant experience, and campus relationships to the CFR team, and she is excited to be joining University Relations.
