"I am pleased to welcome Doctor Barry to his new leadership position at UMDNJ," Christie said. "He has an impressive medical background and education and is intimately familiar with UMDNJ's challenges and successes through the years. All of these factors make him an excellent choice for the UMDNJ chairmanship."
"I want to thank Bob Del Tufo for guiding UMDNJ through a turbulent period in the university's history," Christie said. "His efforts have played an important role in furthering the goals of improving and strengthening the state of New Jersey while putting UMDNJ on a path of future success.
