BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - University of Alabama at Birmingham officials say a new dean has been chosen for the graduate school after a national search.

Officials said in a release Friday that Lori McMahon has been named dean of the university’s graduate school and will begin her new role Oct. 1.

Officials say McMahon, a professor in the department of neurobiology, began working for UAB in 1998 and earned a doctorate in neuropharmacology from Saint Louis University Health Sciences Center.

Associate Dean Jeffrey Engler began serving as the graduate school’s interim dean when Bryan Noe retired in December 2014.

Officials say McMahon will work with faculty in all academic disciplines and will report directly to the provost.

UAB officials say the school’s graduate enrollment has increased 43 percent in the past decade.
