Another faculty resignation at the University of Virginia. Ian G. Macara, Ph.D.; Harrison Distinguished Professor of Microbiology; Director, Advanced Microscopy Facility resigned Wednesday. His resignation letter to Dean Zeithaml read in part "My wife and I are moving to Vanderbilt University, together with our $6 million in grant funding." William Wulf, UVa University of Professor (in Computer Science) and recent 11-year President of the National Academy of Engineering resigned Wednesday. So did Vice Rector Mark Kington.
