University of Iowa interim Executive Vice President and Provost Sue Curry has been appointed to the position of administrative fellow in the Office of the President by UI President Bruce Harreld.

According to a press release, Curry will split her time between research and supporting major UI initiatives. She will also become senior adviser for preventative services for the National Institutes of Health, where she will identify and advance preventative research and advise on strategy and coordination between NIH and its partners in prevention.
