“I am deeply honored to be joining this extraordinary group of scholars. It is a privilege to be thought of, nominated and elected to this worldwide society that is dedicated to educating the public on many important academic topics,” Dean Allison said. “I never get tired of learning new things, exchanging ideas, and trying to figure things out. I am a scholar, always, and flattered to be invited to be a part of this academy of amazing researchers, academics, and practitioners.”
The Academy of Europe was founded in 1988, and is comprised of leading experts from a number of science disciplines, the humanities, economics and law.
“David’s stellar academic and research reputation made him the ideal candidate to serve as the School of Public Health’s new dean,” said provost and executive vice president Dr. Lauren Robel. “His election to the Academy of Europe’s Council affirms his place at the very top of his field and reflects the deep respect his research has garnered among his peers. We are so thrilled that David has brought his commitment to academic excellence to the School of Public Health, and we look forward to many groundbreaking advancements in the medical sciences during his tenure.”
