Greenberg Re-Elected as Consortium Board Chair
Dr. Raymond S. Greenberg, president of the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), has been re-elected as chair of S.C. Sea Grant Consortium’s Board of Directors.
Greenberg became president of MUSC in January of 2000. Prior to coming to Charleston, he served on the medical school faculty at Emory University and was the founding dean of the Rollins School of Public Health there. An immediate challenge was to restore fiscal health to the university’s hospital. This was achieved through organizational restructuring and operational improvements, which then allowed the university to undertake a progressive replacement of its aging hospital facilities. He arrived at the Medical University in 1995 as the vice president for academic affairs and provost.
He holds a medical degree from Duke University, a master’s degree from Harvard, and bachelor’s and doctoral degrees from the University of North Carolina. Nationally recognized for his research on cancer, Dr. Greenberg has served on many scientific advisory boards and holds two honorary doctorates.
“We are extremely pleased that Dr. Greenberg will serve as Board chairman for the next year,” said M. Richard DeVoe, executive director of the Consortium. “His leadership and guidance will be instrumental as the Consortium pursues opportunities for relevant coastal and ocean research and outreach efforts that address the ever-growing needs of the state and its people, especially in light of the difficult budget challenges that we face moving forward.”
