Vanderbilt worked to redesign administrative support structures in the research enterprise by consolidating departmental support into administrative pods*.  While Departments and their academic missions remain intact, their research administrative needs are now met by the teams in their corresponding POD.

POD 3 proudly provides support for the following Departments, Centers and Institutes

  • Molecular Physiology and Biophysics
  • Pharmacology, Cancer Pharm, Clinical Pharm and Neuroscience
  • Vanderbilt Center for Addiction Research
  • Warren Center for Neuroscience Drug Discovery

The Leadership Council members for POD 3 are Nancy Carrasco, Ph.D., Craig Lindsley, Ph.D., Ege Kavalali, Ph.D., and Danny Winder, Ph.D.

Led by Assistant Dean of Administrative Operations Kimberly D. Turner and a team of experienced staff, POD 3 strives to provide the best quality support to its faculty, staff, and students.
