Cohen is inducted into URI life sciences hall

Posted 12/9/13

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – More than 100 colleagues and former students celebrated the University of Rhode Island’s College of the Environment and Life Sciences induction of professor Paul Cohen into its hall of fame in November.

The Narragansett resident was recognized for his 47-year career studying E. coli and for his teaching and mentorship of numerous graduate students who have gone on to have highly successful careers.

Cohen joined the URI faculty in 1966 following a post-doctoral research appointment at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee and earning his Ph.D. at Boston University in 1964. During most of his URI career, he conducted research on the various strains of E. coli, the common bacterium that lives in the intestines of humans and other warm-blooded animals, in some cases causing serious intestinal disease.

Cohen expects to retire from URI in January of 2015. •
