Caspian tigers, some of the largest cats that ever lived - up to 10 feet long and weighing more than 300 pounds - met a grim end in the middle of the 20th century.
Until the mid-1960s when they were designated as extinct, they ranged from modern-day Turkey through much of Central Asia, including Iran and Iraq, to northwestern China.
Dr. Christopher T. Nomura, a professor in the Department of Chemistry at ESF, has been appointed vice president for research at the college. Nomura, who joined the ESF faculty in 2006, will transition into the new position beginning this month. He takes over leadership of a research program that tallies about $16 million in expenditures annually.
