Stephen Glickman, a pioneer in behavioral endocrinology and founder of the world’s first colony of captive spotted hyenas — he raised generations of them in a UC Berkeley research facility — died at his home in Berkeley on May 22 from pancreatic cancer. He was 87.
A professor emeritus of psychology and of integrative biology, whose lifelong bond with animals began during his boyhood near the Bronx Zoo in New York, Glickman joined the UC Berkeley faculty in 1968.
Congratulations to Assistant Professor Dipti Nayak on receiving a 2020 Arnold & Mabel Beckman Foundation Beckman Young Investigator Award!
The Department of Integrative Biology supports its faculty, staff, and students that participate in the #ShutDownSTEM strike today.
Congratulations to UCMP's Director of Education and Outreach, Dr. Lisa White the newly appointed Chair of the AGU s (American Geophysical Union) Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee.
Dr. White joined the UCMP in July 2012 as Director of Education and Outreach. She comes to the UCMP after a 22-year history at San Francisco State University where she held positions of Professor of Geosciences and Associate Dean of the College of Science and Engineering.
A message from the MCB Co-Chairs on our commitment to the department's core values of embracing diversity, inclusion, and dedication to providing an academically enriching and supportive climate for all.
Congratulations to Caroline Williams on receiving tenure and her promotion to Associate Professor of Integrative Biology.
Professor Williams research combines field-based natural history and experiments with laboratory-based biochemistry and physiology. She studies how insects and other ectotherms respond to variable environments, using the information to predict how insect populations will change as a result of climate change. Much of her research has focused on winter climate change, and at present she is working on how changing snow cover will impact the physiology, ecology, and evolution of montane beetles.
Congratulations to Gloria Brar on receiving tenure and her promotion to MCB Associate Professor!
