The most recently hired faculty members to join the UCSF School of Pharmacy have research interests that range from the treatment of blood clots to mapping biological networks in cancer cells to understanding the molecular workings of ion channels in cell membranes. But they all share the common purpose of ultimately discovering new ways to better address disease through therapeutics. These eight are now at work in the School’s three departments.
