The state Board of Regents approved the University of Iowa’s appointment of Daniel Reed as the next vice president for Research and Economic Development on Wednesday.

Reed, a current corporate vice president for Microsoft, will follow current UI Vice President Jordan Cohen, who has served in the position since 2010. Reed’s term will begin Oct. 15.

“I am delighted to be joining the University of Iowa, one of this country’s great public research universities,” Reed said in the press release. “These are exciting and challenging times, and Iowa is strategically placed to help shape the future of academic research, enhance technology transfer and economic development, and address important issues for Iowa, the U.S., and the world. Working together, even greater things are ahead.”

Reed earned a doctorate at Purdue University in 1983, and he has been a professor at the University of North Carolina and the University of Illinois.
