 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Julie Sandell is the senior officer of the University responsible to the Provost for matters involving faculty, and oversees faculty recruitment, appointment, and compensation. The Associate Provost is responsible for the promotion and tenure process for the Charles River Campus and works closely with the University Provost on faculty policies, including those that support the University’s commitment to faculty diversity, professional development, and work-life balance. She represents the Provost in discussions with schools, colleges, and University-wide groups on issues concerning the faculty. Prior to her appointment in January 2011, Julie served as Associate Provost for Faculty Development, Chair of the Faculty Council for Boston University, and member, ex officio, of the Board of Trustees.

Julie has been a faculty member in the Boston University School of Medicine since 1991, where she holds the rank of Professor. She is a retinal neuroanatomist and former Vice Chair of the Department of Anatomy & Neurobiology. She has particular expertise in anatomical changes in the retina in retinitis pigmentosa in humans and animal models, including rabbits, rats, dogs and pigs. In 2001 she received the Stanley L. Robbins Award for Excellence in Teaching, the highest teaching award at the medical school.

Julie received her PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1984, and her AB from Princeton University in 1979.
