Science, Teaching, and Innovation from the Perspective of College Dean Kathryn Uhrich
In this episode of Beyond the Bench, hosts Madison Sankovitz and Monique Rivera talk with CNAS Dean Kathryn Uhrich on a wide range of topics including: How does one person lead a career that involves serving hundreds of faculty as dean of schools in two universities, creating over 70 U.S. and international patents, and publishing 140 peer-reviewed papers? What is it like to work at the intersection of academia and corporate business?
