Tim Moore, the Walker professor and associate dean for research for Auburn University's Harrison College of pharmacy, will be the interim dean of the college, effective June 1.
This decision follows an internal search for a new dean after the previous dean, Richard Hansen, stepped down.
Moore has held various leadership roles in medical research and academia for over two decades, including several prominent positions with the National Institutes of Health, according to the email sent to students on Tuesday.
Moore joined the Harrison College of Pharmacy in 2016 as department head of the Department of Drug Discovery and Development. During his leadership, Moore oversaw the opening of the University's first Pharmacy Research Building.
After three years as department head, Moore transitioned to the role of associate dean in 2019. Under this leadership, the college has added the Center for Neuroscience Initiative; Center for Pharmacogenomics and Single-Cell Omics Initiative; Center for Opioid Research, Education and Outreach; Cancer Research Center; and the Auburn-VCOM Institute for Clinical Research.
The University will launch a search for a permanent dean for the college in the coming months.
