I would like to give my warmest congratulations to Dr. Steve A.N. Goldstein ’78, the next provost of Brandeis University! (He is succeeding Marty Krauss, Ph.D. ’81.)
He is a professor of pediatrics at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and director of the Institute of Molecular Pediatric Sciences. He hails from New York City and came to Brandeis in 1974 as an undergraduate. He earned a B.A. and M.A. in biochemistry in 1978, graduating Phi Beta Kappa. In addition, he holds a M.D. and Ph.D. in immunology from Harvard. He returned to Brandeis in 1993 while he completed a postdoctoral research fellowship with biochemistry professor Christopher Miller.
He even met his wife on the Brandeis campus in 1980!
You are all encouraged to welcome Dr. Goldstein by e-mail at Goldstein @brandeis.edu or take up the invitation from President Fred Lawrence to attend a reception on Thursday, June 2, from 3-4 p.m. in the Board of Trustees Room/President’s Garden in the Irving Enclave.
