We are pleased to announce that Professor Celia W. Goulding will serve as the new chair of the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry effective July 1, 2019.
A UCI faculty member since 2007, Professor Goulding has had notable accomplishments in both the fields of biochemistry and structural biology, focused on understanding how bacteria function, particularly the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
In addition to her research, Professor Goulding has dedicated a great deal of service to the School. She has served as vice-chair of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry since January 2017. She has been a member of the School’s awards committee, devotes much time to the minority science programs and currently sits on the undergraduate cabinet.
