Kim Holloway joined Northeastern University in March 2020 as the inaugural Vice Provost for Research Development, working in the Office of the Sr. Vice Provost for Research. Prior to joining Northeastern, Kim started the office of Research Development at Cornell University in 2016. Her expertise and role in supporting large center grant development efforts contributed to over $216M in sponsored funding flowing to the institution. In 2018, Kim began the first grant writing “bootcamp” at Cornell, dedicated to helping early career faculty, particularly women and under-represented minorities, obtain federal grant funding.
At Northeastern, Kim will be charged with driving strategically important areas of research at the university, particularly supporting college research priorities, the interdisciplinary research institutes and the global network of Northeastern campuses as they build out their research programs.
Kim was formerly a faculty member in the department of Biomedical Sciences at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and had a federally funded research program studying the complex processes contributing to meiotic recombination in mammalian gametogenesis. She completed her PhD in human genetics with Professor Sir Alec Jeffreys at the University of Leicester, UK, and her postdoctoral studies in reproductive genomics at Cornell University (Ithaca) under the mentorship of Dr. Paula Cohen.
