    New President at Gladstone Institutes

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

    I am pleased to congratulate renowned scientist Deepak Srivastava, MD, on his new role as the third president of the Gladstone Institutes.

    Deepak is recognized for his contributions in the fields of cardiology and stem cell biology. His laboratory has been a leader in deciphering how embryonic stem cells form a heart, learning how that process is genetically disrupted in heart disease, and using that knowledge to regenerate damaged hearts. Deepak will maintain his research laboratory activities at Gladstone during his tenure as president.

    Sexual Misconduct

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community,

    The revelations of serious sexual misconduct across the nation over the last several months have underscored its devastating impact on individuals and organizations. These highly-publicized instances of workplace sexual harassment and sexual assault call on all institutions, including UCSF, to redouble their efforts to end abusive behaviors. We are committed to a UCSF community that is free from harassment and discrimination.

    Mayor Ed Lee

    Dear Members of the UCSF Community:

    I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Mayor Ed Lee. He was an extraordinarily decent, upbeat, and dedicated leader of San Francisco, and a staunch ally of UCSF in our mission to provide high-quality health care for all, teach the next generation of innovators and caregivers in the health sciences, and drive breakthroughs in research. I had the pleasure and honor of working closely with Mayor Lee over the past several years on a variety of UCSF-City partnerships.
