Dean

Troy C. Daniels Distinguished Professorship in Pharmaceutical Sciences

Dean B. Joseph Guglielmo, PharmD, leads the creation and implementation of the School’s strategic agenda and ensures the School has the operational framework and resources required to succeed. He is the School’s public voice, articulating its vision, its plans for the future, and its passion for precise therapeutics—as seen in its work from basic science to health policy. He ensures the School meets its mission, advances scholarship, and delivers continually improving academic and patient care programs. As dean, he works closely with UC San Francisco's chancellor and other campus leaders as part of the campus leadership team to create the conditions for this diverse campus to work as “One UCSF” and, in doing so, further succeed in leading revolutions in health.

Guglielmo is a pharmacist, clinical scientist, teacher, and international expert on the evidence-based use of antimicrobials to treat infections.  He joined the UCSF School of Pharmacy faculty in 1979 after earning a PharmD degree from the University of Southern California and subsequently completing a UCSF pharmacy residency. In 2006 he was appointed chair of the Department of Clinical Pharmacy, and in 2013 he was appointed dean after serving as interim dean since 2012.
