Five pharmacy women at Mission Bay

By early spring 2004, five female scientists from the UCSF School of Pharmacy will have moved to Mission Bay, the University of California San Francisco's new 43-acre research campus.

Patricia Babbitt, PhD; Pamela England, PhD; Kathy M. Giacomini, PhD; Su Guo, PhD; and Susan Miller, PhD “form a powerful and outspoken group of basic science researchers and exceptional role models to young women,” states Mary Anne Koda-Kimble, PharmD, School of Pharmacy dean. “Their work has important implications—from cleaning toxic waste to tailoring medicines to the special needs of individuals,” she adds.
