The change, announced by UIC Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs Robert Barish, MD, on March 20, is pending approval by the University of Illinois board of trustees. Dr. Rosenblatt would assume the interim CEO role on May 16, while also remaining executive dean for the University of Illinois College of Medicine.

Dr. Rosenblatt is executive dean for the University of Illinois College of Medicine; professor of ophthalmology, Illinois Lions/Charles I. Young Chair in Ocular Research; director of the Corneal Regenerative Medicine Laboratory; and associate vice chancellor for physician affairs.
