Jacquelyn S. Fetrow has accepted the appointment of Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs for the University of Richmond. She will also hold an appointment as Professor of Chemistry. She brings to the role of Provost a distinguished record of academic, administrative leadership and an equally distinguished record of research and teaching and bioscience industry experience.

Dr. Fetrow comes to Richmond from serving as Dean of Wake Forest College and Reynolds Professor of Computational Biophysics at Wake Forest University. Prior to joining the Wake Forest faculty in 2003, Dr. Fetrow was Chief Scientific Officer and Director of GeneFormatics, a biotechnology software company. She also holds a U.S. patent for co-inventing GeneFormatics’ primary technologies.

While serving as Dean, Dr. Fetrow’s accomplishments for Wake Forest were extensive all while sustaining her own research program focused on the relationship of protein structure, function, and dynamics - which aims to improve the structure-based drug discovery process. In addition to mentoring graduate students, she has actively involved undergraduate students in her research. She has held numerous NIH and NSF grants throughout her career. She is Secretary-Treasurer of the Protein Society and a member of the Board of Directors of QuantumBio, an early-stage biotechnology software company.
