Knosp appointed associate dean at UI Carver College of Medicine

Boyd Knosp has been appointed to the new position of associate dean for information technology (IT) in the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine, effective May 5.

In his new position, Knosp will be responsible for providing leadership and setting the strategic direction for IT that supports the research and academic missions of the college. He will work closely with IT colleagues across the university to ensure that researchers and educators in the medical school have access to new and existing technologies to support their work.

Knosp will report jointly to Carver College of Medicine Executive Dean Peter Densen and to Associate Vice President for Information Systems Lee Carmen.

"I am truly pleased that Boyd has agreed to join the University of Iowa Health Care team," said UI Vice President for Medical Affairs Jean Robillard. "Our research and education enterprises are large and complex. They rely on information technology in ways we could not have imagined a few years ago, and Boyd is uniquely well suited to help us advance our ambitious academic agenda."

Knosp has served as manager of research services with the UI Information Technology Services since 2001. During that time, he has been responsible for providing IT support for researchers across the campus and leading the E-Research project, an effort that created a strategic plan for research IT at the UI. Prior to that, he was director of the Image Analysis Facility, a central research facility that served researchers and others on the UI health campus.

A native of Jefferson, Iowa, Knosp holds bachelor's and master's degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the UI. He has worked at the UI since 1985.
