UCSF will form a dedicated advisory board to help ensure that the University continues to excel as a health sciences innovator and deliver on its critically important public mission, Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann, MD, MPH, told the UC Regents on July 18, 2012.

The new UCSF board will serve as strategic advisors to the chancellor and, through the chancellor, to UC President Mark Yudof and the Board of Regents, Desmond-Hellmann told the Regents with members of her leadership team at her side at UCSF Mission Bay.

"Among the 10 campuses, UCSF is uniquely challenged as the only campus solely focused on the health sciences," she told the Regents. "The crisis in health care, diminishing state support, rising student debt, escalating employee benefit costs and downward pressure on research funding have created a 'perfect storm' in the competitive health sciences marketplace which requires urgent action."

"The working group proposed the appointment of a group of dedicated directors with operational and strategic expertise to guide UCSF through these challenging times," Desmond-Hellmann told the Regents.

The chancellor said she will return to the Regents in about six months to share the UCSF board's charter, membership and metrics for success.
