The 2018 Graduate Division Commencement Ceremony will take place on Wednesday, June 6, at 6 p.m. at the Nourse Theater at 275 Hayes Street in downtown San Francisco! We are looking forward to celebrating this major milestone with our graduate students, their families and friends, and with our faculty and staff at UCSF, who also take great pride in our students' accomplishments.
Patricia (Patsy) Babbitt, PhD, will give this year's Commencement Address. Dr. Babbitt is professor of computational biology in the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences, the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, and the Quantitative Biosciences Institute. She was a founder and long-time director of the graduate program in Biological and Medical Informatics at UCSF. Dr. Babbitt was elected in 2018 as a Fellow of the International Society for Computational Biology for “her pioneering contributions to our understanding of sequence-structure-function connections in enzymes, and to our ability to computationally annotate and predict those connections.” She is the first person in her immediate family to go to college.
More details to follow as they become available.
