    STEPPING DOWN
    University of Illinois Vice President for Research Lawrence B. Schook announced March 16 that he will step down from the universitywide post in August to return to his research and faculty work on the Urbana and Chicago campuses. Since 2011, Schook has played a central leadership role in management of the university’s nearly $1 billion per year sponsored-research portfolio, and has overseen the U. of I.’s technology commercialization and economic development activities.
