Dr. Joanna Wysocka Appointed to Endowed Professorship
Joanna Wysocka, PhD, professor of chemical and systems biology and of developmental biology, was appointed the Lorry Lokey Professor, effective Dec. 4. Her research examines how gene regulation and expression are related to human development, evolution and disease.
The professorship was established with a gift from Lorry Lokey and an anonymous donor to support a basic science faculty member who specializes in stem cell research. Lokey, a Stanford alumnus and significant donor, founded Business Wire, which distributes press releases and regulatory disclosures.
