Paul Anderson, MD, PhD, Named Chief Academic Officer & Sr. V.P. at Brigham & Women’s Hospital
Paul J. Anderson, MD, PhD, a senior physician in the Division of Rheumatology, Immunology and Allergy and the K. Frank Austen professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, accepted the position of chief academic officer and senior vice president of Research for Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) earlier this year, after serving on an interim basis since June 2014.
As chief academic officer, Dr. Anderson says he “oversees the scholarly activity of the faculty, while promoting the core values of BWH, which include teaching excellence, research leadership and quality patient care.” The Brigham Research Institute has 10 different research platforms that serve to break down “research silos” and create an atmosphere for cross-collaborative efforts.
Dr. Anderson received his BS from SUNY Stony Brook and his MD and PhD (microbiology) degrees from New York University School of Medicine. “I came to BWH as an intern, then stayed through residency and fellowship. I’ve spent 20 years running a National Institutes of Health-funded lab.”
Now that he’s so involved with administration, he’s “winding down on the clinical side.” But he feels continuing to run a lab and write grant proposals is important because that activity keeps him connected to the field.
