The Medical College of Wisconsin announced that it has hired Dr. Jonathan Ravdin, an international leader in infectious disease, as the dean and executive vice president of the medical college starting May 5.

Ravdin, a professor and chairman of the department of medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School, is widely recognized for his research on the molecular mechanisms by which Entamoeba histolytica causes colitis and liver abscess and how humans develop an effective mucosal immune response. His work has lead to an experimental vaccine that could potentially prevent infection and eradicate the disease.
