Lisa Nolan, Dr. Stephen G. Juelsgaard Dean of Veterinary Medicine, will leave Iowa State after this semester.

Nolan will become the dean of the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine on July 1, according to the University of Georgia news and information service.

She joined the Iowa State faculty in 2003 as a professor and chair of veterinary microbiology and preventive medicine. She served as associate dean of academic and student affairs in the College of Veterinary Medicine from 2007 to 2009 and became the dean in 2011.

This opportunity at the University of Georgia allows Nolan to return to her alma-mater, where she earned her doctor of veterinary medicine degree, as well as her master’s and doctorate in medical microbiology.

Along with teaching and serving as dean, Nolan has contributed to many research publications regarding bacterial diseases of production animals.
