USU biologist becomes dean at Washington State University

Utah State University biology professor Daryll DeWald has been named dean of Washington State University’s College of Sciences, furthering a connection between the two land-grant institutions. DeWald has been with USU for the past 15 years and now serves as head of the biology department. His research has explored plant stress physiology and cancer biology, which helped him develop ties to WSU through collaborations with the late biologist Clarence Ryan.
