President Beverly Warren announced via email Paul DiCorleto as the university’s new vice president for research and sponsored programs on Thursday.

DiCorleto comes to Kent State from the Cleveland Clinic, where he served as Sherwin-Page Chair of the Lerner Research Institute. He will begin his new position on Aug. 17.

“We are delighted that someone of Paul’s caliber and distinction is joining our leadership team,” Warren said in a university press release. “He will make an immediate impact in advancing our current areas of excellence in research and will be instrumental in the design and implementation of a vision that positions Kent State as a strong national contributor to new knowledge and understanding in the areas of research, scholarship and innovation.”

DiCorleto will aid in securing external funding to support research and instructional or public service projects.

“I’m excited to join the Kent State team to help bolster existing research programs and position Kent State as a leading research university,” DiCorleto said in a university press release.

DiCorleto will report directly to Warren, as the new role will be made a cabinet-level position.
