December, 2013: The Center for Human Genetics is pleased to announce that Professor Robert H. Tamarin, former Dean of the College of Sciences at the University of Massachusetts, has joined our Board of Directors.

Robert H. Tamarin is Emeritus Professor of Biology and former Dean of the College of Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, a position he held from September 1996 until September 2012. He began his teaching career at Boston University, where he remained for 25 years; for the last six, he was professor and chairman of the Biology Department. He received his B.S. degree from the City University of New York, Brooklyn College, and his Ph.D. from Indiana University.

Before beginning at Boston University, Professor Tamarin was a National Institutes of Health Postdoctoral Fellow in the Genetics Department at the University of Hawaii and a Ford Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in the Biology Department at Princeton University. His research interests have focused on evolutionary genetics. He has developed electrophoretic, radioisotopic, and DNA fingerprinting techniques for use in studies that were funded by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Atomic Energy Commission, and the American Philosophical Society. He has also received two educational grants from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and funding from Duke Energy Gas Transmission.

Professor Tamarin is a widely published author of many scientific articles and Principles of Genetics, a textbook in its seventh edition with McGraw-Hill Publishers. He was a regular contributor to World Book Science Year and is included in 15 “Who’s Who” listings, including Who’s Who in the World, Who’s Who in Frontiers of Science and Technology, and Outstanding Scientists of the 20th Century.
