Tsiatis named inaugural Cox Professor

As many of you know, the endowment that supports this professorship was made possible by the generosity of one of our department’s most distinguished alumni, J. Stuart Hunter (PhD ’54), professor emeritus in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Princeton University.

In his letter notifying Butch of his appointment, Dean Solomon said, “This title of distinction is awarded in recognition of your sustained record of high scholarship and, in particular, your signal contributions to the design of clinical trials. Your appointment as the first Cox Professor pays fitting tribute to the legacy of Dr. Cox.”
