Duke University has chosen Jennifer Lodge, an accomplished scientist and research administrator, to serve as Vice President for Research and Innovation.

In her new role, Lodge will oversee Duke’s $1.2 billion annual research portfolio, lead tech transfer efforts, support start-up launches and work with industrial partners to commercialize Duke technologies.

Lodge previously served as Vice Chancellor for Research and Senior Associate Dean for Research for the School of Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis, where she was responsible for research development, ethics, education and research administration systems.

“I am delighted to welcome Jenny to Duke and look forward to working with her to advance research support and opportunities for all Duke faculty members,” says Provost Sally Kornbluth. “Jenny brings to Duke an impressive track record of accomplishments both as a scientist and as a research administrator, as well as an exciting vision for supporting faculty and student innovation and commercialization activities.”

Lodge comments, “This is a spectacular opportunity because of the strength of the different schools and the many distinct disciplines at Duke. My philosophy has always been about enabling the rapid advancement of the creative research being done by faculty, staff and trainees, while keeping research ethics high.”
