URI appoints new vice provost
for Graduate Studies, Research and Outreach

KINGSTON, R.I. -- September 8, 2000 -- Dr. Janett Trubatch, treasurer of the board of trustees and development officer of the Muldoon Community Development Corporation in Anchorage, Alaska, has been appointed vice provost for Graduate Studies, Research and Outreach at the University of Rhode Island. Trubatch officially joins the University on Sept. 25, and succeeds recently retired Vice Provost Thomas J. Rockett, who held the position since 1996.

As vice provost, Trubatch will administer the executive office of the URI Graduate School, serve as the University's chief research administrator, and be an advocate for URI outreach efforts. She will serve as a member of the Council of Deans and as a member of the Provost's staff to help with a broad range of issues.

"Dr. Janett Trubatch was chosen from a strong and diverse field of candidates for this important position," said M. Beverly Swan, provost and vice president for academic affairs. "We are excited about her appointment and are confident in her ability to lead the University's research, graduate education, and outreach efforts throughout the state and region."

Reporting to Swan, Trubatch is charged with providing leadership to support research activities; identifying infrastructure needs and the mechanisms for addressing them; strengthening graduate programs; and contributing to outreach efforts. She will also be responsible for advancing the University's role in economic development; spearheading collaborative relationships with government, industry, other universities and non-profits; and for the promotion of the transfer of technology developed at the University.

Dr. Trubatch comes to URI with more than 20 years of research, teaching, administrative, and development experience in universities and federal funding agencies. She has extensive experience in the creation of innovative partnerships and issues surrounding intellectual property.

With Muldoon Community Development Corporation since 1998, Trubatch has managed the agency's development and program activities, including leading strategic planning efforts, developing funding, and administering welfare-to-work and affordable housing development efforts, among others.

Prior to her position at Muldoon, Trubatch served as Associate Vice Chancellor of Research and Graduate Studies at the University of Alaska Anchorage from 1995 to 1998, vice president for University, Industry and Government Alliances for the Oak Ridge Associated Universities Oak Ridge, Tenn., from 1991 to 1994, and associate vice president for research at the University of Chicago from 1985 to 1989. Previously, she spent eight years in Washington, D.C., as a research administrator at the National Institutes of Health and as program director for neurobiology at the National Science Foundation.

Trubatch began her professional life as a physicist, assistant professor of physics at California State University-Los Angeles from 1967 to 1968. She then did her post doctoral studies at Caltech where she became a biologist. She subsequently became an assistant professor of physiology at New York Medical College from 1973 to 1977, where she developed and directed the physiology portion of the neurobiology course and created the medical school neuroscience curriculum.

The author of more than 30 publications in physiology, anatomy, biochemistry, physics, and technology transfer, Trubatch has recently served on the National Science Foundation panel for the selection of U.S. Science and Technology Centers.

Trubatch holds an undergraduate degree in physics and mathematics from the Polytechnic Institute of New York, a Ph.D. in Physics from Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass., and a M.B.A. from the University of Miami. She is a member of the American Physiological Society and Women in Neuroscience, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, among others.
