Robert McGrath to lead Georgia Tech Research Institute

 
Georgia Tech Research Institute
 
December 23, 2010
 
Georgia Tech Executive Vice President for Research Stephen Cross has named Battelle Memorial Institute’s Robert T. McGrath the new director of the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) and Georgia Tech vice president.

McGrath, currently a consultant on National Laboratory/University Partnerships, STEM Education, and Race to the Top initiatives for Battelle Memorial, will begin his new responsibilities Feb. 1, 2011. He succeeds Cross, who served as GTRI director from 2003 to 2010 before being named Georgia Tech’s Executive Vice President for Research (EVPR) in May 2010.

“GTRI is a research powerhouse,” McGrath said. “It has a significant reputation both nationally and internationally for applied engineering and basic science research. GTRI is very well positioned because of its researchers’ outstanding expertise in selected problem areas important for defense and homeland security. We also have significant opportunity to translate that expertise into important technology contributions in sectors such as energy, biomedical engineering, and health care.”

McGrath served as the Senior Vice President for Research at The Ohio State University from 2004 to 2008 and as Associate Vice President for Research and Director of Strategic and Interdisciplinary Initiatives at The Pennsylvania State University from 1998 to 2004. During his tenure, he built extensive partnerships between academic, industry, and government sectors on a variety of applied research projects.

As part of institutional strategic planning at Ohio State, McGrath collaborated with the president, provost, college administrations, and faculty members on the Targeted Investments in Excellence (TIE) initiative, which identified and helped fund the institution’s top 10 preeminent academic and research programs. In support of academic programs, he also led efforts to establish the Office for Undergraduate Research.h Executive Vice President for Research Stephen Cross has named Battelle Memorial Institute’s Robert T.
