Dr. Michael Diamond named Senior Vice President for Research

In an email released Wednesday, Provost Gretchen Caughman announced that Dr. Michael Diamond had been named Senior Vice President for Research, effective immediately.

“Dr. Diamond brings broad leadership and research experience to the position, in which he will oversee all aspects of the university’s research enterprise,” Caughman said.

Diamond had been serving as Interim SVP for Research since September.

After 19 years at Wayne State University, he joined GRU in early 2013 as the inaugural Vice President for Clinical and Translational Sciences. He is a reproductive endocrinologist and expert in designing and implementing clinical trials whose study focus includes infertility and procedure-related adhesions.

While at GRU Diamond has created the Division of Clinical and Translational Sciences, formed research committees focused on improving research processes, led a comprehensive review of research policies and procedures, and oversaw the identification and implementation of new research software.
