Andrew Maloney, who was previously the Center Operations and Safety Manager, is now the Center Operations Manager. He will manage overall center operations, administrative and laboratory staff management, and oversee the financial issues of the center.
"With the changing times in the center and as we try to broaden our reach (and collaborations) with industry through Mark’s new position, there is a synergy to be got from combining the lab and business management functions into one role. How the center operates will become more transparent and efficient with quicker responses to the changing environment" said Andrew.

In line with KAUST objectives of increasing collaboration with industry, Mark will manage the center's engagements with extramural entities, including companies, research institutes, foundations, and government agencies.
