Hopkins’ provost named dean of Stanford’s medical school

Dr. Lloyd B. Minor, provost of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, has been named dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine, according to announcements by the two universities.

Minor, a physician, has spent nearly two decades at Hopkins, and has been provost and senior vice president for academic affairs for the past three years. He will leave Hopkins at the end of August.

Jonathan A. Bagger, Krieger-Eisenhower Professor of Physics and Astronomy and, since 2008, vice provost for graduate and post-doctoral programs, will serve as interim provost, beginning Sept. 1, as Hopkins launches a national search for a new provost.
