Jason Gestwicki, PhD

Professor

My research group studies how molecular chaperones maintain protein homeostasis. This question is important because imbalances in protein homeostasis are linked to a number of incurable diseases, including neurodegenerative disorders. Molecular chaperones regulate all aspects of a protein’s...

UCSF School of Pharmacy leads in NIH funding for 34th year in a row

For the 34th consecutive year, the UCSF School of Pharmacy has received more research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) than any other pharmacy school in the United States.

School researchers were awarded $29.2 million during the 2013 NIH fiscal year, from October 1, 2012 to...

Danica Galonić Fujimori, PhD

Professor

I am interested in the development of novel chemical tools that allow us to interrogate biological processes on a molecular level with the ultimate goal of developing novel therapeutic strategies for the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases.

Guglielmo named dean of UCSF School of Pharmacy

B. Joseph Guglielmo, PharmD, an honored UCSF professor and mentor as well as a leading pharmacist and clinical scientist specializing in antimicrobial therapies, will be the new dean of the UCSF School of Pharmacy.

Susan Miller, PhD

Professor Emeritus

Broadly, I use a variety of biochemical and biophysical tools to investigate protein structure/function questions spanning the range of elucidating novel aspects of catalysis in individual enzymes to understanding the interactions of proteins within a pathway and how mutations influence flux...

Al Burlingame, PhD

Professor

My research interests focus on the development of state of the art methodologies in mass spectrometry for use in advancing our global knowledge of human biology, specifically the dynamic, epigenetic modulation and regulation of the proteome.

John Gross, PhD

Professor


I am interested in protein structure and dynamics related to gene expression. We study changes in protein structure that occur on time scales ranging from millions of years to a millionth of a second, with a focus on basic questions of how viruses cross-species and give rise to modern pandemics...
