Purdue Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering announces new directorWednesday, January 11, 2017
Paul Griffin has joined Purdue University as the new director of the Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering (RCHE) and professor of industrial engineering, effective Jan. 1. His appointment resulted from a national search conducted by the university.
Griffin joins Purdue after serving as the Virginia C. and Joseph C. Mello chair and professor in the Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech. He also served as the research director for health care delivery in the Center for Health and Humanitarian Systems at Georgia Tech and co-led the Center for Health Analytics. Prior to his Georgia Tech appointment, Griffin served six years as the Peter and Angela Dal Pezzo Head of the Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering at Penn State.
“Paul is very well suited and prepared to take on this vital directorship role at RCHE,” said Suresh Garimella, Purdue’s executive vice president for research and partnerships and the Goodson Distinguished Professor of Mechanical Engineering. “He is no stranger to applying engineering principles to the complex health care delivery system, and Purdue is very fortunate that he has accepted this important role to lead RCHE into an exciting phase of growth.” (Read more)
