The Burroughs Wellcome Fund's Career Guidance for Trainees (CGT) program has awarded funding for two pilot projects at UC San Francisco (UCSF). Dr. Thi Nguyen, PhD, program director of career development, and Dr. Laurence Clement, PhD, program director of academic career development, who are both on the staff of UCSF's Office of Career and Professional Development (OCPD), created and submitted the winning proposals.
UC San Francisco won two international awards from the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), including a “Grand Gold,” the organization’s highest honor.
UCSF's University Development and Alumni Relations team won the “Overall Grand Gold” in the Alumni Relations Program category for the group’s ability to actively engage graduate and postdoc alumni.
PhD candidate Scott Coyle and Silvia Rouskin, a recent PhD graduate, have been granted a prestigious Harold M. Weintraub Graduate Student Award from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. The two winners, both out of UCSF's Tetrad Program in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, were selected on the basis of the quality, originality and significance of their work.
The Graduate Division is proud to announce its 2015 Distinguished Alumna of the Year, Victoria Hale. Dr. Hale graduated from the UCSF Pharmaceutical Chemistry PhD Program in 1990.
After establishing formidable expertise in drug development at the FDA (1990-95) and Genentech (1995-1998), Hale founded OneWorld Health, the first nonprofit pharmaceutical company in the U.S.
