Vice President for Research and Economic Development
University of Missouri System

Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development
Missouri University



Mark McIntosh is the current Vice President of Research and Economic Development at the UM System and Vice Chancellor of Research and Economic Development at MU. After completing his doctorate at the University of Texas, Austin, in 1978, he completed postdoctoral training at the University of California, Berkeley. 


McIntosh is nationally recognized for his work on iron transport in bacteria and his grounding in top-level basic science gave him a strong foundation and critical outlook to inform and support his work in the development of science and scientists at MU. His leadership experience includes chairing the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology in the MU School of Medicine, where his vision involved establishing interdisciplinary collaborations with virology, immunology and pathology and forming alliances with the MU College of Veterinary Medicine. He also was instrumental in MU’s early commitment to interdisciplinary research, which initiated the construction of a research center dedicated to that cause – the Bond Life Sciences Center. 


As the administrator of research at both the UM System and MU levels, McIntosh is integral to the success of the chancellor’s challenge of doubling Mizzou’s research expenditures in the next five years. He also is spearheading the teams that are building the UM System’s number one capital priority, the Translational Precision Medicine Complex, the multidisciplinary facility that will position the System and MU as a global leader in precision medicine, a revolutionary approach to disease treatment that delivers customized patient care based on an individual’s genes, environment and lifestyle.
