    Arthur Haney, a specialist in reproductive endocrinology, infertility and the prevention of adhesions following gynecologic surgery, joined the University faculty as Chairman and Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology earlier this spring.

    Haney, 56, comes to Chicago from Duke University, where he was the Roy T. Parker professor and director of the division of reproductive endocrinology and infertility in obstetrics and gynecology.

    "Arthur Haney is a nationally recognized scientist, a superb clinician and an experienced academic leader," said James Madara, Dean and the Richard T. Crane Professor of the Biological Sciences Division. "We are happy to bring him to the University and look forward to seeing him continue the distinguished work of this department."

    The recipient of numerous honors, including a Distinguished Professor Award from Duke University in 1986, Haney has served as president of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the Congress of the International Federation of Fertility Societies, and as a director of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He has published more than 100 journal articles and has written dozens of review articles and book chapters.

    Haney received a B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 1968 and an M.D. from the University of Arizona in 1972. Following residency and fellowship programs at Duke University, he joined Duke's faculty in 1976.

    Haney succeeds Arthur Herbst, the Joseph Bolivar De Lee Distinguished Service Professor, who served as Chairman since 1976.
