Kane will co-chair both the search advisory committee and a smaller search subcommittee with Tim Mulcahy, U of M vice president for research. "I'm honored and deeply humbled that President Kaler has the confidence and trust in me to help lead a critical search for the University of Minnesota," said Dr. Kane. "I am fortunate to be working with Vice President Tim Mulcahy, whose judgment related to leadership skills and characteristics is unsurpassed."
