Johns Hopkins Gazette: June 26, 1995

Bryan, Khurgin and Erozan Promoted

     The board of trustees has voted to promote two members of
the Homewood faculty and one from the School of Medicine to the
rank of professor.

     The board, at its May meeting, promoted Betsy M. Bryan of
the Department of Near Eastern Studies in the School of Arts and
Sciences, and Jacob B. Khurgin, of the Department of Electrical
and Computer Engineering in the G.W.C. Whiting School of
Engineering. Both appointments are effective July 1.

     The board also voted to promote Yener S. Erozan of the
Department of Pathology in the School of Medicine, retroactive to
May 1.

     Bryan, a member of the Hopkins faculty since 1986, is a
respected expert on the political and art history of ancient
Egypt and on the position of women in the Egyptian elite. She won
wide acclaim for her years of work as guest curator for a
traveling exhibition, "Egypt's Dazzling Sun: Amenhotep III and
His World," which won the Apollo Award in 1993.

     Khurgin, at Hopkins since 1988, is known for creative and
significant research work, both theoretical and experimental, in
the area of quantum-welled structures. He won a Student
Appreciation Award in 1993 for his classroom teaching.

     Erozan, who has been a member of the medical school faculty
since 1968, is director of the John K. Frost Cytopathology
Laboratory at Johns Hopkins Hospital and a past president of the
American Society of Cytology. He has served frequently as a World
Health Organization and United Nations consultant and is
recognized for defining studies of the cytologic changes
associated with lung tumors.
