It is with excitement for Sean Kassen that I share with you his acceptance of a new position in the College of Science as the NP-C Research Program Director. In this role, Sean will coordinate the scientific and administrative operations of the Michael, Marcia, and Christa Parseghian Excellence fund for Niemann-Pick Type C (NP-C) Research including coordination of the program’s research grant process, outreach and communication efforts, and continued fund raising activities specifically for supporting NP-C research. The NP-C Research Program Director will have a direct reporting relationship to Mary Galvin, the Dean of the College of Science, and a dotted line reporting relationship to me so that all fundraising efforts for NP-C Research are coordinated through the Development Department.
Since 2009, Sean has worked tirelessly on behalf of Notre Dame to advance the College of Science to new heights with unwavering work-ethic, dedication, and creativity. We are grateful for his many contributions for science and academic advancement and look forward to his leadership of such an important program as the NP-C Research Fund at Notre Dame.
Sean will continue to serve in his current role in academic advancement until we have identified a new AAD for Science. Please join me in congratulating Sean on this exciting and well-deserved opportunity.
In Notre Dame,
Jim W. Morrison
Senior Director, Academic Advancement
