🕐 1 min read

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A prominent stem cell researcher at Harvard University has been appointed the next dean of its medical school.

Dr. George Daley will start the job in January. He replaces Jeffrey Flier, who stepped down in July after nine years at the helm.

Harvard President Drew Faust announced the decision Tuesday, praising Daley as an advocate for scientific discovery and a remarkable leader. Daley has been a faculty member at Harvard Medical School since 1995.

Daley earned undergraduate and medical degrees from Harvard. He has researched the mechanisms that underlie blood disorders and cancer and helped develop international guidelines for conducting stem cell research.

Daley says he’s honored to lead one of the world’s best resources for broadening scientific understanding.
