After ten years at The Kavli Foundation, Dr. Miyoung Chun has decided to pursue new opportunities and has resigned her position as the Executive Vice President of Science Programs. Her contributions, creativity, strategic thinking over the past decade all enhanced the mission of the Foundation's Science Programs.
Dr. Chun has helped strengthen the Kavli Institutes and expanded the Foundation's meetings program to its current level, which supports more than thirty meetings a year. In particular, Dr. Chun's role in organizing a series of Kavli meetings with key Kavli Institute members catalyzed the U.S. Brain Initiative. This was a singular achievement for her and for the Foundation.
Her contributions also helped the Foundation become an important and innovative leader as a founding partner in the Science Philanthropy Alliance, and she facilitated collaborations with and among other Alliance members.
On her departure, Dr. Chun commented, "I appreciate the opportunities that Fred Kavli, the Board of Directors, David Austin, and Robert Conn have provided me during the last ten years. It has been an honor to serve The Kavli Foundation and all Kavli scientific family members around the world."
The Foundation is appreciative of Dr. Chun's contributions and wishes her success in her future endeavors.
