The University of Akron Research Foundation (UARF) has selected George Chase to serve as president. A professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, Chase is also the current director of STEM research at UA. In his new role, he will lead the UARF’s mission of developing and commercializing university research.

 “George is a natural fit to become the UARF president,” says Nathan Mortimer, chief financial officer and vice president for finance and administration at UA. “He has a comprehensive understanding of the research ecosystem, is well respected by his colleagues and peers, and the UARF presidency will uniquely leverage his role as director of STEM research here at the university.” Chase was officially named president on October 26th.
